On Friday March 21, 2014, high school students from all around Bergen County will converge upon Bergen Community College in Paramus New Jersey to take part in hands-on workshops in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M.). The goal is to open the minds of these young people to the various career opportunities in the S.T.E.M. fields as they participate in the SECOND ANNUAL TEEN S.T.E.M. Day!
We are looking for volunteers to help host/teach one of these sessions. Students will be anticipating exciting and engaging hands-on activities and we look forward to your help offering these experiences to them! We are also looking for volunteers with information tables at lunch regarding Careers in S.T.E.M.
Please fill out the following form by August 1, 2013. A member of the committee will get back to you with additional details.
Our inaugural event, held in the winter of 2012, was highly regarded by the student participants and received a great deal of media attention including The Bergen Record, the Patch, and various local television spots.
