Middle-Level Educators Open House w/Informational Session & Guided Tours

WCNY Education Center
Let us know you are coming:
Located on the top floor of WCNY’s new Broadcast and Education Center on Syracuse’s Near Westside, the 10,000-square-foot “Enterprise America” city will expose your students to real-life career expe-riences in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), entrepreneurship.
The co-curricular learning pro-gram is designed for middle school students (and, later, for high school students), and includes several weeks of class-room curriculum aligned to Common Core and NYS Learn-ing Standards. As an Enterprise America teacher, you’ll prepare your students by having them explore what it takes to make a modern American city work, from local government to busi-ness to wellness and media. Then, you and your students will take that knowledge and put it into practice by running the Enterprise America “city” for a day.
Students immediately apply what you’ve taught them in a hands-on setting. They’ll hone their critical-thinking, communication and collaboration skills as they become employers, employees and consumers in a “city” they manage.
The city’s businesses support STEM career opportunities in the region and help students appreciate how important education is for their future careers.
Because WCNY has partnered with BOCES, assistance to teachers and schools wanting to participate in Enterprise America is available through the OCM BOCES Science Center (or cross-contract).
