College and Career Fair
May 17, 2017
NJIT’s College of Science and Liberal Arts hosted a College and Career Day Event for High School juniors interested in STEM disciplines, and their teachers. The event, co-hosted by Future Ready Schools - NJ, focused on such topics as how to prepare for college, what students learn in college in various disciplines and the associated career opportunities, how to succeed in college, leadership skills experiences useful for successful careers, and more!
Students met in small groups (in a speed dating format) with college students, faculty and staff, as well as representatives of various corporations and organizations.
Students experienced demonstrations of cutting edge research, participated in hands-on activities, and learned about campus student organizations.
Teachers earned professional development hours in a concurrent program focused on STEM topics.
The day was closed by Newark Mayor Ras J. Baraka's inspiring keynote speech (below)!
