"It was a good experience working with the Mock Trial Committee in a technical capacity. This provided a wonderful opportunity to evaluate an all-too-real scenario and help shape the technological and technical aspects of the case toward that same level of realism. I am grateful to know that the assistance I provided has been useful to the Mock Trial Committee, and I thank my advisor, Dr. Cristian Borcea, for initially forwarding this opportunity to me." “We greatly appreciate NJIT's input in this year's mock trial case, which we hope will be not only academically challenging but will help to change driving habits and prevent tragic accidents,” said Richard J.

Netflix Contest winners, AT&T researchers Bob Bell and Chris Volinsky, recently told 22 science and technology teachers from throughout New Jersey that collaboration was key to winning the prize money. The occasion was a teacher luncheon, wrapping up a three-day conference at NJIT highlighting the use of robots in science, math and technology classes. The NJIT Center for Pre-College Programs hosted the event, thanks to Netflix prize money won by a team led by Bell and Volinsky and donated last year to NJIT by AT&T.  Teachers walked away with teaching ideas, plus Lego Mind Storm sets to continue building robots back in their classrooms. “My kids are going to be so excited that we now have this kit,” said Rich Bettini, a technology teacher at West Essex High School, North Caldwell, who participated in the learning session. Conference organizer Howard Kimmel, director of the NJIT Center, said that robots were a great way to introduce science and math materials in a multi-disciplinary way to students. “When you design a robot you also teach algebra,” he said. “We also love them because they are a hands-on learning tool, something which always enhances learning.” >>

I challenge you to go out and change the communities around you, be of service, help your fellow brothers and sisters, come back and be a role model to Newark youth. Doing the public good is your job and duty as citizens of this great city of Newark.” >>
