The 3rd Annual Super Saturday STEM Expo took over the Harlem Armory on May 17, with science projects from dozens of District 5 Elemenary and Middle Schools, a chess competition, a math tournament, and representatives from Columbia University and the City College Macauley Honors programs on hand to get kids excited about all of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) possibilities.

While experts continue to debate whether there actually is a shortage of college graduates in the STEM field - some say absolutely, while others argue not so much - no one is disputing the fact that no matter what profession today's kids will someday attempt to break into, and yes, that includes the liberal and fine arts, some technological knowledge will be mandatory.

No one can escape the requirement of basic computer literary. It is to the 21st Century what basic literacy eventually became for the 20th.

Which means that the folks who set up the Super Saturday Expo are on the right track. Click on the photos to see what else was on display, and how it can help NYC's children prepare for tomorrow.
