Cisco and the New York Academy of Sciences have announced two new partners, the City of Buenos Aires, Argentina and the State University of New York (SUNY), which will join The Global STEM Alliance. Cisco and the New York Academy of Sciences have established the Global STEM Alliance to bring curriculum resources, inter-generational mentorship and access to science and technology research to students around the world. The country of Malaysia and The City of Barcelona were the first to join the Alliance in October this year.

Also announced today is a proof of concept center that will enable the Academy, via Cisco technology, to connect STEM students involved in local programming, with other students around the world, as well as with experts in the fields of science, math and engineering. SUNY, which provides graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who act as mentors in the Academy's Afterschool STEM Mentoring Program, has also installed widespread use of Cisco TelePresence to facilitate interaction among students, faculties, and researchers across its locations in New York and around the globe.

The Global STEM Alliance will allow for the integration of technology and content, linking the New York Academy of Sciences' local programs to locations around the world through in-person and online platforms.
