S.Y.S.T.E.M.S. PressRelease

Date Released: 03/4/2011


S.Y.S.T.E.M.S. (Stimulating Your Science Technology Engineering and Math Students), is a NHSHS based program that conducts multiple sessions throughout the school year in which local community and parent volunteers called Ambassadors that work in a science related career give a brief and personal overview of how they got interested in science, what training and education did they need, what do they do now and what do they love about a career in science.  The forum exposes students to the diverse paths and wide array of opportunities that a career in science can offer. 

On Tuesday, March 22, 2011 from 7:00-8:00PM in the Board Room (Administration Building) 5 Ambassadors, an RN that went on to get her MBA and now has a company that does marketing support for the pharmaceutical industry, a PhD trained in Biochemistry that is a Research Assistant Professor at Rutgers, a practicing veterinarian that trained at the University of Pennsylvania, an  environmental and geological scientist who works as a geotechnical consultant, and a RN who now consults for pharmaceutical companies for medical writing and drug safety.  We invite you to come and hear how these scientists have enjoyed a challenging and rewarding career in science.  At the meeting we will also have applications for the 2011 the SYTEMS Star Summer Scholarship Award.  Juniors this summer can qualify for up to a $1000 scholarship for internships in a STEM related field.  Come get an application (due May 16th ) and hear the specifics, as well as get updated on even more exciting SYTEMS Programs to come!
