Kids in Brooklyn showcase technology and STEM concepts for the cities of the future at an open house. 

Hundreds of middle and high school students from across the city gathered at NYU Tandon in Downtown Brooklyn for their STEMnow initiative. The free program helps kids explore areas like smart cities, robotics, cybersecurity, wireless technology, and artificial intellegence. At Friday's event the stuents showed off their final projects. 

Ben Esner from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering says “one of the things that we try to demonstrate always through these programs is that engineering, and technology, and science are yes technical fields but they're also very, very creative fields."

NYU Tandon #STEMnow program offers a variety of programs in which kids can participate. For more information go to
