2014 STEM SUMMER RESEARCH
This past summer, six students from Roselle Park High School participated in real-life laboratory research at NJCSTM. The group of students worked with Dr. Salvatore Coniglio, Associate Professor of Chemical Biology, to determine how proteins are affected by cancel cells.

2014 WESTFIELD STEM CAMP
Westfield Public School District’s second annual STEM Camp was held at NJCSTM this past summer. Kean's Science Education majors prepared lessons for the 200 participating Westfield students and taught classes that were all designed within a superheroes theme. This was a great opportunity for the campers to experience a laboratory environment for the first time.
