MOST Names New Presenting Sponsor for Be the Scientist
The Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science & Technology, which recently celebrated 40 years, has a new presenting sponsor for its Be the Scientist program – Amazon.
Held on the last Saturday of each month, the program allows visitors to explore careers in STEM. Upcoming topics include: Be the Robotics Engineer; Be the Drone Operator; Be the Orthopedist; and Be the Zoologist.
“We are overwhelmed with excitement to work with Amazon and welcome them into our community,” said Lauren Kochian, MOST president, in a press release. “Especially with a program like Be the Scientist, having funding to support career exploration makes a difference in the thousands of students we serve each year. Hands-on education is critical to fill a huge and growing STEM career pipeline, and Amazon’s support enables the MOST to continue to grow this program. We can’t thank Amazon enough for their contribution to the MOST.”

Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways Wins International Award
The Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways (GSNYPENN) Council was recently recognized at the 18th Annual International Business Awards, winning a Bronze Stevie® Award for its 2020 Annual Impact Report. A virtual ceremony was held on December 8.
“Our 2020 Annual Impact Report was designed to commemorate the extraordinary efforts of our girl and adult members, staff, and community partners during a once-in-a-lifetime event: the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Wendy Cobrda, GSNYPENN chief marketing and strategy officer, in a press release. “Our goal was to communicate the gravity of the situation and the duality of our membership year (beginning normally on October 1, 2019, and taking a sharp turn in mid-March 2020), while highlighting the joyous spirit of our members who continued to earn their highest awards, kept each other comforted during the crisis, and quickly pivoted when in-person activities were no longer safe.”
