Members Samuel Mozzillo, John Kunz, Emily Lanahan, Gavin Faria, Matthew Kunz, and Christopher Mozzillo under the guidance of their advisors, Andrew Wager and April Bergman, accepted the State's invitation to present and explain the Future City's program to the employees of State Ed and to some members of the Board of Regents. An interesting time was had by all and there was even enough time to soar to the top of the Corning Tower and experience a few sights at the State Capitol.

Sample courses and activities for Horizons II: Computer Science (Coding), Mathematics, General Engineering, Digital Forensics, Personal Enrichment, and Team-building and Leadership.

The Horizons program is intended to help girls embrace the excitement of science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics (STEAM) and to better understand and communicate its everyday use and importance. Through fun and challenging hands-on projects, the Horizons curriculum uses an integrated instructional module in mathematics, science and engineering that is supported by the arts and technology. At Horizons, participants are taught by a predominantly female staff composed of teachers and other professionals. Our young guests are also accompanied and mentored by program assistants who are undergraduate or graduate college women who excel in STEAM disciplines.
