This year NJ Academy of Science has partnered with the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce development, to assist in establishing a hub for STEM business leaders to collaborate with public partners in resolving workforce, economic and education challenges impacting New Jersey’s industries. As part of this initiative, NJAS has developed a new session into its annual meeting called, “NJ STEM Enterprises and Alliances showcase”, welcoming all enterprises to share their mission goals in the STEM sector, and to have a space in our meeting to be able to share their success, products, internships, and programs with our community.
The New Jersey Academy of Science (NJAS) is one of the longest science organizations based in NJ. Over the past sixty-eight years, the NJ Academy of Science annual meeting has grown into a widely anticipated career and research forum among the scientific community in the Tri-State area.

Participants include faculty, postdocs, undergraduate, teachers, parents and high school students from all over NJ.
