About

The SOAR program began in May 2008 as the Chem-Bio Technology Lab (CBTL).  It was made possible by funding from NSF and The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation, and began as a partnership between Polytechnic Institute of NYU and the Urban Assembly Institute of Math and Science in hopes of providing enriched learning in the chemistry of life. 

Our goal is to develop and integrate interdisciplinary Chem-Bio labs for 9th and/or 10th grade students at the Urban Assembly Institute. Students at the New York University Tandon School of Engineering, under the guidance of Professor Jin Kim Montclare and the teachers at both the Urban Assembly Institute and Brooklyn Technical High School will work on the development of computational and experimental modules that will be integrated into the Urban Assembly Institute and Brooklyn Technical High School's curriculum.
