New Jersey High School Students Explore STEM Programs at The College of Saint Elizabeth

Morristown, NJ, July 20, 2017 — Rising high school seniors across New Jersey applied for the opportunity to spend a week at the College of Saint Elizabeth (CSE) exploring science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers.

Fourteen students were chosen from a pool of dozens of applicants to participate in the week that began on July 9.

Erin Colfax, program director, explained the purposes of the week of intensive learning.

“It gives students who are pre-collegiate an opportunity to experience a college campus while interacting with professionals and professors in STEM fields,” she said.

“Not every student knows exactly what they want to be in the future, but they may have an area that they’re curious about and we’re helping them take the abstractness out of the curiousness and make it a little more concrete,” Colfax said.

Each morning, the students spent about a half hour discussing the many areas of STEM study.

“It’s an engaging experience that gives us great exposure and better understanding of all of the careers within science, technology, engineering and mathematics,” said Amrit Chauhan, of Edison, who is interested in computer science.

Students lived in a residence hall where they learned a bit about college life. Their activities ranged from dissecting sheep brains, studying urban farming and taking field trips to Gateway National Park for marine biology lessons, to understanding actuary science.

The guest speakers included professionals in the healthcare field, science writers and a representative from the U.S. Patent Attorney’s Office.
