Each March, New Jersey celebrates its incredible accomplishments in science, technology, engineering, math and innovation through NJ STEM Month. The Governor’s STEM Scholars joined the celebration this year with multiple activities.
On March 2nd, Scholars joined a virtual STEM class, "Bio-Inspired Methods in Aerospace Engineering" with Dr. Aimy Wissa, Assistant Professor of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University. Dr. Wissa shared her research into birds and insects leading to new designs in unmanned air vehicles, such as drones.
On March 30th, the Governor’s STEM Scholars joined the New Jersey STEM Pathways Network (NJSPN) at a STEM Showcase at the NJ State House in Trenton. STEM organizations from across the state showcased their work within New Jersey’s STEM pipeline. Four Governor’s STEM Scholar Team Leads, Niranjana Ananth, Lilya Eid, Maya Mann, and Yug Yadava shared their research with more than a dozen Legislators throughout the day.
