The Paley Center for Media, the Verizon Foundation, and the Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment are proud to present FROM STEM TO SCREEN: INSPIRING TOMORROW’s CREATORS. This annual networking event connects New York City high school students, from diverse backgrounds, with media professionals who use STEM in various fields of production and post-production.
