Last week BenchPals was invited to attend the annual gala event held by the New York Academy of Sciences. We were featured in a video which you’ll see on the NYAS site! It was a wonderful opportunity to network with individuals who are working in the sciences or are supporting scientists. Unfortunately I’m not able to upload the video here directly but please follow the link and scroll down to watch it yourself! Ching Yao and I talk a little about what it was like taking a business class at NYAS and how it helped us in the formation of BenchPals.
BenchPals recently entered the NYU Technology Venture competition! We think we have a great shot for funding in this competition, and we invite you to listen to our elevator pitch and read the summary of our business on Gust! More exciting things to come from BenchPals soon, so stay tuned!
It’s been a long time coming (a few months?) but this activity on measuring the difference in viscosity of different types of milk was finally published on the Teach Engineering website today! It’s designed for middle school students and is a fun way to learn about chemical/physical properties of milk and how they change depending on the fat content. Mmm!
This is from a few months ago but I hadn’t seen it until today!
Check out this article from the New York Academy of Sciences Magazine that talks about the course that my BenchPals and I took called “From Idea to IPO”. BenchPals is highlighted as a real life company that was sparked from the lessons taught during the course. Read on to see what comments Ching Yao, Raul, and I have about starting BenchPals!
A video that summarizes the whole Wouldn’t It Be Cool If… experience, from coming up with the brilliant invention ideas to announcing the winner! I’m in there too, at minute 3:24!
