NJ STEM Month Initiative
NJAS Colloquium for LIFE (Leadership, Innovation, Fellowship, and Excellence) in STEM
This virtual colloquium is an initiative of the NJ Academy of Science that aims at empowering middle school and high school students' perspectives on diverse scientific themes. The focus is to cultivate an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) or health sciences by providing a space for students to showcase their expository writing, art, topical presentation, or research initiative to our scientific community.
NJAS is giving our youth a voice, as stated by Dr. Brion-Meisels, “listening to young people doesn’t mean unilaterally considering their perspective, it means recognizing that young people have a perspective on the world that adults can’t share, and that their perspective should be welcomed alongside the wisdom that adult perspectives bring.” For this reason, NJAS is excited to invite students from NJ to showcase their work at this colloquium.
The colloquium is meant to raise a discussion regarding scientific cutting-edge topics and enhance STEM awareness by enhancing delivery of diverse scientific media styles. All (novice or expert) presenters are welcome to present or showcase their scientific piece and gain feedback from the NJ Academy of Science community.
This NJ Academy of Science initiative is aim to build a support medium for students to establish relationships with their peers, teachers, NJAS community and people in their potential career field who can provide great support, friendship and growth. It can lead to professional relationships in their future.
Recognition: Students will receive a certificate from the NJ academy of Science and presenters will be introduced as the 1st class of LIFE inductees.
