SIM NY Community Outreach 
"True happiness is being able to help others". 
"Service is a privilege".

Our chapter is honored and committed to giving back to our communities by developing programs for members through alliances and partnerships.

Join fellow SIMNYers and participate in one of our programs!  There are many ways to get involved such as coaching and mentoring, judging mobile apps and robotics and donating and raising funds for worthwhile causes, etc.
Giving back is not only greatly appreciated by the folks and organizations you help but it is a personally gratifying and fulfilling experience, and fun, too!  Your time, skills, knowledge and lessons learned motivate, inspire and grow the network of technology talent and also benefit the communities and the world we live in.

Chapter Spotlights

Technovation Girls Global Competition

Technovation is a global program that equips young women ages 10-18 to become tech entrepreneurs and leaders. Many SIMNY'ers  joined the global judging panel again this year.  We evaluated some of the many innovative apps submitted from inspired teams who focused on solving pressing problems in their communities around the world.

NYC FIRST Tech Challenge

Supporting broad STEM education, SIMNY members served as judges in the NYC FIRST Challenge. High School teams designed and built working robots while overcoming pandemic challenges.  Students applied advanced techniques while collaborating remotely.  SIMNY is proud to support tech leaders of the future.
