Harvard Business School Club of New York Volunteers to Help STEMteachersNYC
STEMteachersNYC had an enviable problem. The nonprofit, which is dedicated to cultivating excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) teaching and to promoting- self-confidence and success for students, was growing so fast that the group’s part-time volunteer organizers were having a difficult time keeping up.
That changed when the group’s founder, Fernand Brunschwig, a retired physics professor, met Harvard Business School Club of New York (HBSCNY) member Efrem Sigel, MBA ’68, at the 50th reunion of the Harvard College Class of 1964. Huddled under a tent on a rainy afternoon in Cambridge, the men got to talking about what STEMteachersNYC does and how it could continue to grow while maintaining its commitment to excellence in science education.
