In a recent conversation with the River Journal, Congresswoman Nita Lowey discussed a STEM event she attended at Regeneron headquarters in Tarrytown. The event was part of Regeneron’s annual “Girls Inc” initiative. It was one of 80+ projects that took place throughout Westchester and Fairfield counties on October 26 as part of the second annual Regeneron Day for Doing Good. This particular project brought in 150 middle school girls from under-resourced schools in various Westchester towns including Ossining to spend the day with 50+ Regeneron scientists for hands-on STEM learning activities on their Tarrytown campus.
Regeneron is committed to supporting their local communities and fostering the next generation of scientists. In total, Regeneron employees around the globe volunteered almost 14,000 hours as part of the Day for Doing Good, with more than 1,700 participating from their Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow locations alone.
