What if its snowing or icy out?

In cases of inclement weather, STEMteachersNYC will notify participants if Teacher College’s Alert System has indicated school closings or a severe weather advisory. We will contact registered participants in advance if a workshop will need to be rescheduled. If you do not hear from us, this means the workshop will proceed as planned.

Photographs and Video Recordings

We take photographs and record video of our workshops in order to publicize a positive image of science teaching, and of STEMteachersNYC – a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. If you register, you are agreeing to be photographed and to have your voice and image video-recorded. You are also agreeing to relinquish all your rights to the photographs and video recordings. 

If you do not wish to be photographed or video-recorded, you must inform us when you check in at the beginning of the workshop. We will take one photograph of your face so that we can erase your image if we happen to catch it by chance during the workshop, and we will do our best to avoid you. We would also appreciate your cooperation in positioning yourself at the edge of the group so as to help us avoid you.
