- New Jersey is one of 25 states where computer science does not count toward high school graduation, making it difficult for local students to build STEM skills or pursue their interests in tech. Consider a summer program like iD Tech, or subscribe to Tech Rocket for year-round, online learning.
- NJ students looking for a fun, STEM-related excursion can check out the Liberty Science Center, one of the state’s most popular STEM-centric museums. Their mission is to “get learners of all ages excited about the power, promise, and pure fun of science and technology.” More info.
- The NJSACC: Statewide Network for New Jersey’s Afterschool Communities has recently implemented an initiative called “Full STEM Ahead,” designed to train local afterschool care providers to become STEM leaders and prepare students for the booming STEM job market. The organization also advocates for the Garden State Girls STEM Collaborative, which focuses on providing high-quality STEM activities for girls, with the ultimate goal of combating female under-representation in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.
