Dear Local Section Members:
We have a wonderful opportunity to partner with Students 2 Science, Inc
(S2S). It is a NJ 501(c)(3) non-profit
corporation that inspires, motivates, and educates Middle School Students to
pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM subjects).
S2S operates a Technology Center that is a state-of-the-art working laboratory
created exclusively for the purpose of educating middle-school students.
Working technical professionals, like many of you, from local corporations
volunteer to work side by side with these young students as they perform
hands-on, age appropriate experiments that emphasize the subjects taught in
their classroom. Students enjoy a “real life” technical
work experience and
benefit from a mentoring relationship.
