A summer program in Brooklyn turned high school students into teachers for a chance to give lessons in STEM subjects to younger kids.
Dozens of students from across the city gathered at NYU Tandon in Downtown Brooklyn for their Creativity in Engineering, Science, and Technology, or CrEST, program. The free week long session introduced middle school students to robotics, circuity, and other STEM disciplines.
At the end of the week the kids competed in a robot car competition.
One high school "teacher" says I feel that it's very important that I sort of spread this knowledge, or like share the wealth with the young generation so they have an idea and they can grow up with all this technology, because that's what they're acustomed to."
Winners of the competition win an NYU swag bag.
