If that includes you, that means you have yet to see the Undergraduate Research exhibit at the library. Be sure to stop and learn more about undergraduate research at City Tech at the exhibit on the 4th floor of the Library building (formerly the Atrium building).

Title and samples from UR exhibitUR poster exhibitThe exhibit is the work of several inspiring City Tech students, as well as faculty and staff from the Library, the Honors and Undergraduate Research Scholars Poster Presentation Session, the Faculty Commons, the Office of the Provost, the Director of Undergraduate Research, and the Undergraduate Research Committee.

City Nature Challenge 2018: New York City

Students, Faculty and Staff members, friends and family! Read here about this exciting biodiversity event starting this Friday and running until Monday:

City Nature Challenge 2018: New York City

Start spreading the news! New York City needs YOU to help find all of the creatures that call our city home. Will you help us win this challenge and show off our city’s biodiversity? You can participate on your own or by attending free events all over the city. See the events lists: FridaySaturdaySundayMonday

In both the paved and green spaces of our city, many species survive and thrive. We’re asking all New Yorkers – residents, visitors, commuters, students, teachers, pedestrians, park lovers, parents, children, EVERYONE – to become citizen scientists and help us make as many iNaturalist observations as we can. Will you join us in this citizen science quest to catalog our city’s great biodiversity?

Check the News section for free events you can join! Let’s put NYC on top! (Events are listed in reverse chronological order, so scroll through them all! Look for an event in a location near you!)

How can you get started? It’s easy! Download the iNaturalist app to your mobile device. During the time from April 27-30, use the app to upload photos of organisms to the iNaturalist and the iNaturalist community will help you identify them. It’s as simple as that!
