Teentech Ramapo was held on Monday, May 22, 2017 in Mahwah, NJ. Registered attendees were 134 high school girls and 18 educators from 10 high schools in central and northern NJ.
The day began with an opportunity for the students to discuss STEM career opportunities informally with professional women volunteers over breakfast. Then students each participated in two of the eight workshops offered, seven by the staff of Ramapo College of NJ, and one presented by volunteers from a local pharmaceutical company. A novel aspect of Teentech Ramapo was that two workshops were presented from fine arts professors involving the technology of music and lighting.
Thanks to the AAUW NJ volunteers Somerset Hills, Greater Wayne and Nutley Branches who helped the event run very smoothly.
