The "On the Brink Lecture Series" is held at the 92 street Y in Manhattan. Our students have the opportunity to meet with contemporary scientists. Students are brought into New York by one of our Science teachers to have dinner with a scientist. They are able to ask questions and purchase a signed copy of his or her latest book. After dinner students attend a lecture by the scientist, a lecture which is often open to the public and is also held at the Y. We have participated in this program since the inception of NSHA HS.
