sySTEMic at Transfer Day

March 1 @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pm

Free

Sponsored by the Garden State-Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority (GS-LSAMP), an NSF-funded program for underrepresented minority students in non-medical STEM fields, Show Your STEM Innovation Challenge (sySTEMic) is a competition between multidisciplinary teams of GS-LSAMP and Northern NJ-Bridges to the Baccalaureate (NNJ-B2B) students to innovate solutions to a real-world problem. This year’s topic is food waste. Student teams will have 4 weeks to conceptualize, research and refine their solutions, which they will then present in 5-minute “Shark Tank” like presentations at GS-LSAMP/NNJ-B2B Transfer Day, an event to encourage community college students to continue their educations at 4-year universities. Presentations will be evaluated by a panel of judges and prizes will be awarded to winning and runner-up teams.
