NYSF Collaboratory

The NYSF has created a new online social destination, NYSF Collaboratory, to help connect alumni, presenters, staff, and donors who support the mission of the NYSF to inspire lifelong engagement and ethical leadership in STEM.

Use the NYSF Collaboratory to:

  • Connect: Engage old friends and make new as you connect with NYSCamp delegates, staff, and presenters from yesterday and today.
  • Mentor: Further the mission of the NYSF by providing knowledge, advice, and career development resources to current students, delegates, staff, and recent alumni.
  • Expand: Broaden your professional STEM network by connecting with others who share similar educational background, passion, and experience.
  • Engage: Remain an active member of the NYSF community by sharing photos, information and updates, interacting with others, and attending alumni social and professional events.

You can join the NYSF Collaboratory with your own email address or existing LinkedIn or Facebook account; you control your own privacy settings. The NYSF will distribute invitations to alumni using information currently held in the NYSF’s alumni database; you can join now at https://nysfcollaboratory.org.
