Teentech Newark, February 23, 2016 at Essex County College
AAUW NJ thanks Essex County College for hosting Teentech. The staff were great at getting things done. AAUW NJ also thanks Educational Testing Service (ETS), of Princeton NJ, for their sponsorship of this event, and all our volunteers who helped make the day a success: Ivonne Diaz-Claisse, President & CEO of Hispanics Inspiring Students’ Performance and Achievement (HISPA), who provided a keynote address; our AAUW NJ Northern District Members and volunteers from the community, who helped with logistics; and the many staff and student volunteers from the college.
The day was a great success with 160 students and 20 educators from nine Newark high schools attending. The day was filled with hands-on workshops ranging from examining humanoid patients, to building rockets.
