Light Tomorrow With Today @ Big Tent of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival
Jun 28 @ 11:30 am – 2:00 pm

Light Tomorrow With Today is an event for Luminate NY, part of NextCorps (formerly HighTech Rochester) taking place on June 28 from 11:30am-2pm in the Big Tent of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival.  The free event is the culmination of a competition for startups in the Optics, Photonics, and Imaging space, that was held in November of 2017 with hundreds of entries from all over the world.  Ten finalists were selected to be part of our inaugural cohort, each of whom received $100,000, plus mentoring from industry luminaries, advice for securing venture capital, introductions to significant potential partners, and free space here at the Sibley Building.

The awards ceremony/demo day will give the public a chance to see fast-paced presentations from each of the finalists who will share information about their startups in an effort to be awarded a $1 million dollar investment. There is also another $1 million available for follow-on funding for other companies. We are expecting about 400 guests from all over the world to witness the excitement. The NY governor and his team are also expected to attend. There will be food samples from several local companies, fun giveaways, and a jazz performance from students at the Eastman School of Music. Lunch is available for purchase from food trucks and vendors who will be on site.

SBU Teacher Workshop @ St. Bonaventure University
Jul 9 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

JULY 9-12, 2018

St. Bonaventure University invites K-12 teachers to the 4th annual lab development workshop on campus July 9-12, 2018, with an optional field trip to Corning Museum of Glass & Sullivan Park R&D Campus on July 20, 2018.

Instructors: St. Bonaventure faculty from the departments of biology, chemistry, physics, computer science and psychology.

The summer K–12 Science & Math Teacher Workshop has two goals:

1.  To bring K-12 science teachers, school administrators and SBU science faculty together for a continuing discussion on bridging the gap between K-12 and college STEM education. Any challenges recognized from the discussion can lead to opportunities for networking and new partnerships between K-12 schools and SBU math and science departments and/or between K-12 schools for both short-term and long-term purposes.
2. To provide a hands-on experience for K-12 teachers to develop integrative lessons. These activities are designed to be transferable to K-12 classrooms to provoke student interests and increase their preparations in the STEM field that is in high demand.

CTLE credits: up to 30 NYS Continuing Teacher/Leader Education (CTLE) credits will be provided by Cattaraugus/Allegany BOCES.

Space is limited. Please contact Tim Clarke @ CABOCES (; 716-375-8321) for registration-related questions. A link to the registration form is forthcoming.

July 16 – 27, 2018

Many young adults enter a science major in college with little or no idea what a scientist does in the laboratory or how laboratory research impacts medicine or environmental issues. The Young Scientist Research Program @ Canisius College provides high school students a hands-on research experience so students can see for themselves what it entails to be a scientist.
Students who complete this program will be able to:

·       Decide whether a science major is the right path for them to take in college

·       Perform multiple experimental techniques in molecular biology, cell biology,  neurobiology, and ecology.

·       Understand how laboratory research contributes to development of treatments for cancer  and neurological diseases.

The program costs only $25 and lunch is provided for all students free of cost. Bring check to first class but please register. Contact Dr. Elizabeth Hogan at 716-888-2552 or for application form.
