A group of high school students from New Jersey, New York and Maryland won an architectural design competition held recently at NJIT with an unusual twist: The students had to design and build a meditation room out of nothing more than cardboard UPS boxes and tape. “They won because of the clarity of their design idea and elegant solution they came up with in the building process,” said Darius Sollohub, an assistant professor at the New Jersey School of Architecture who judged the student projects, which were part of the school's Summer Architecture Career Exploration Program. >>
A group of 15 guidance counselors from high schools in Puerto Rico toured the university today beginning at 8:30 a.m., when a number of NJIT officials spoke to them about the university's pre-college programs and academic offerings. The counselors will see classrooms and research labs and talk to professors here about their fields of interest. The counselors will return home and tell their students about what they saw and heard at NJIT. The tour is sponsored by the School of Management (SOM). Barbara Tedesco, associate dean of SOM, said the tour could help attract top students from Puerto Rico to attend NJIT, and that diversity is part of the university's strategic plan. “The counselors mentioned that many students in Puerto Rico have a particular interest in business, technology and management,” said Tedesco, “so this would be a great place for them to study.” >>
High school students who want to design their own video games and electronic circuits--as well as understand the chemistry of fireworks and the physics of explosions--can now study these subjects at NJIT. This fall, the university will launch the Science and Technology Enrichment Program (STEP), where high school students eager to learn hands-on science and technology can enroll in exciting courses taught by some of NJIT's best professors. For more information, contact Associate Professor Michael Baltrush at 973-596-3386. >>
