STEM Talks @ Schechter Westchester is a new distinguished lecture series launched this year by Solomon Schechter School of Westchester. Featuring accomplished professionals in STEM-related fields (Science, Technology,
Engineering, Math), the program was created to demonstrate the real-life application of STEM education, with a goal of inspiring students to pursue careers in these critical areas.



Dr. Paul Hertz’s career path exemplifies the breadth of opportunity available to students who are interested in STEM. As Director of the Astrophysics Division in the Science Mission Directorate at NASA, Dr. Hertz is responsible for the Agency’s research programs and missions to discover how the universe works, explore how the universe began and developed into its present
form, and search for Earth-like planets.


Technical literacy is critical to the future of the US and global economies. Schools must invest in STEM education and inspire students to pursue careers in these areas to meet increasing industry and society demands.
Schechter Westchester is one of seven Jewish day schools pioneering an engineering course – Sci-TECH Research and Development program – a three year program that trains selected students in an integrated STEM approach and
sparks their interest in possible careers in those fields.


The event is free and open to the public. All interested members of the community are welcome.
