Our fourth grade students were invited to attend a Science Carnival held by the Biotechnology Club at Kean University. The purpose of Science Carnival is to collaborate with young students to spark an early interest in the science field. The day started at 9:30 A.M. and ended after a lunch of pizza. Students attended the event in the STEM building and explored numerous activities, both hands-on and demonstrations by the Biotechnology Club members. One of our alumni, Michael Oro, is a freshman in the STEM program at Kean. As a member of the Biotechnology Club, he enjoyed sharing his love of science through a hands-on oil spill cleanup activity.
