The Founding Fathers called for a patent system in the Constitution to "promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts." On June 19, 2018, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued patent number 10 million. Patent 10 million marked a historical point in the American intellectual property system dating back to the first U.S. patent, signed 228 years ago by George Washington on July 31, 1790, and issued to Samuel Hopkins for a process of making potash, an ingredient used in fertilizer. Since then, the patent system has grown with applications across all scientific disciplines. While supporters of the patent system argue that it drives innovation, others argue that the system is skewed to favor large corporations and encourages monopolies. Laura Macro, PhD, JD is an Associate at a large New York law firm and she will lead the discussion.
Dr. Macro earned her PhD in Cellular Biophysics from The Rockefeller University in 2012 and her JD from Fordham University in 2017. Dr. Macro focuses her practice on patent litigation and prosecution in the life sciences sector. Dr. Macro is well versed in a variety of technologies, and her experience includes representing a wide range of companies, from start-ups to large research universities.
This event is open to all high school students in the New York City area, free of charge. Register now! Extra credit will be awarded to students who complete the usual requirements for attending a lecture.

Women In Science and Engineering (W.I.S.E.) is a free annual symposium, founded by Poly Prep educators, Fleurette Turkenkopf and Jamie Nestor. Since it began in 2012, the one-day conference has inspired NYC middle and high school girls to pursue science and engineering and has introduced them to a wide range career options in STEM fields.
Each year, girls from all over the tri-state area descend on the beautiful Poly campus in Brooklyn for a day of inspiration and creativity. They meet accomplished women who work in STEM fields and enjoy a day of hands-on experiences in a variety of workshops specifically designed for grades 5–12. In the workshops, girls collaborate to solve problems using creative design processes. Run exclusively by women, the girls who participate in W.I.S.E. are able to see themselves in the program’s leaders. They leave empowered with the confidence to pursue higher education in STEM and a better understanding of a wide range of career opportunities they may pursue. Through W.I.S.E. and its philosophy, Poly continues to attract girls interested in STEM and to inspire women who are already here.
If you enjoy science, technology, or math, love to tinker and see how things work, or wonder what engineers do, W.I.S.E. welcomes you. This year’s W.I.S.E. event is on Sunday, November 11 from 9 AM to 4 PM at Poly Prep Country Day School, 9216 7th Ave, Brooklyn NY 11228. Please visit polywise.org to register or email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
Do you know any high school students interested in learning about careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)? If so, encourage them to register now for the 7th Annual STEM Career Day on Tuesday, November 6!
High School students interested in learning more about careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), are invited to participate in STEM Career Day on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 to learn first-hand about career pathways in these fields by visiting up to two New York City companies for an inside look. There are so many STEM careers in unexpected places. High school students sign up for the event individually and travel on their own to the companies. Sessions take place at each company and occur from 10:00–11:30 AM and 1:00–2:30 PM. Registration is required. All participants will receive a free t-shirt and a round-trip MetroCard. Sign up now for this amazing experience! Learn more about this opportunity and register to participate. Registration deadline is Friday, October 19, 2018. For questions, email STEMCareerDay@schools.nyc.gov.

All juniors and seniors with a currently active research placement who would like to apply for a 1.05 weighted research course (Honors Science Research) for the spring semester of 2018 must fill out, print, sign, and present this form to their supervising teacher along with an up to date lab log. See your supervising teacher sometime between Monday, April 23 and Friday, April 27 (unless you were told to do something different). Renewal is not automatic. You need to apply every semester.
An "active" placement in the fall is one with 16 hours (on average) of lab log entries per month for February, March, and April. A placement is not official until your mentor has contacted me saying you have been accepted to work in their lab. It should also state the date you began working there.
Learn how the immune system can be harnessed to fight cancer. This talk is part of the quarterly Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) Student Seminar Series, created to share expertise with students, communicate the excitement of cancer research, and create a learning community at MSK. Students grade 9–12 or college are invited, and they can bring classmates. Date & Time: Wednesday, April 25, 2018, 5:00–6:30 PM. Location: Zuckerman Auditorium, 417 East 68th Street (note that this is not the usual location we go to for MSK lectures).
|How the Immune System Can Be Manipulated to Control Cancer
Michael A. Postow, MD is part of the Melanoma and Immunotherapeutics Service and the The Jedd Wolchok Lab. He has an interest in developing clinical trials for patients with melanoma involving immunotherapeutic strategies. His specific areas of interest include studying the immunologic effects of radiotherapy and characterizing pharmacodynamic biomarkers associated with ipilimumab outcomes.
Have you ever felt overwhelmed by your school work? As a practicing clinical psychiatrist, Dr. Davis will discuss best practices that can help reduce school-related anxieties. She will speak about her fMRI research on the connection between learning disorders and anxiety, and share strategies to reduce school-related anxiety to improve studying.
