The Foundation to Inspire Excellence In Nyack Schools (Inspire Nyack) will be awarding the district $40,000 to continue to integrate and expand the successful Robotics program.  To date, Inspire Nyack has raised over a quarter million dollars through their past three Casino Night events to fund the robotics program that was started a few years ago. The funds will be given to the district during a formal Nyack School Board meeting in February.

On Friday, February 11th, in partnership with the Nyack School District administration, Inspire Nyack will sponsor targeted assemblies and expos that will celebrate one of America’s most inspiring inventors, Thomas Edison. These INSPIRE NYACK DAY events range from a Thomas Edison Student Expo to the Liberty Science Center’s groundbreaking interactive assembly on electricity and gas to a Super Science assembly that explores the force of gravity and sound.

Inspire Nyack will also be hosting their fourth annual Casino Night on Saturday, March 5, 2011 at the Nyack Seaport for Cultural Events in Nyack, New York. The event will be held from 7:00-11:30pm. Proceeds from the event will continue to fund educational enrichment programs in the Nyack School District.  Raffle items include a Samsung 3D TV, an Apple iPad, an XBOX Kinect system and more!! Limited tickets are available for this exciting, fun event and can be purchased online.
