Kathy Sullivan at CREST

The 11th Annual NOAA Cooperative Remote Sensing Science and Technology Center (CREST) Day was held on Thursday, April 19, 2012 in the City College of New York's (CCNY) Steinman Hall, and proved once again to be greatly successful at promoting and inspiring Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education to the next generation of scientists and engineers. Attendees heard from an assemblage of top scientists and NOAA speakers, including Dr. Kathryn Sullivan, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Environmental Observation and Prediction/NOAA Deputy Administrator.

Since its inception in 2001, the annual NOAA CREST Day has showcased the research and opportunities that make NOAA CREST such a unique and special part of the New York metropolitan area. Following its recent inauguration to status as a City University of New York Institute, the NOAA CREST gathering fulfilled its promise of a fun-filled and informative day for anyone interested in coastal, atmospheric and hydrologic sciences. Attendees included more than 150 metro area high school students, as well as CCNY undergraduate and graduate students, NOAA CREST faculty and researchers and special invited guests.
