68th Annual Meeting -  Fundraiser

Our Mission

The NJ Academy of Science (NJAS) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve and promote the advancement of STEM-related fields among the NJ scientific community. The organization is 100% funded by its membership dues, publications, fundraisers, and private donations. It is our hope that our NJAS  members and friends continue to contribute to our mission. The NJ Academy of Science was founded in 1954, is affiliated with the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and is a member of the National Association of Academies of Science.

The purpose of the academy is to stimulate education and research in science throughout New Jersey. The academy seeks to accomplish this purpose by publication of a scholarly journal, The Bulletin, by support of secondary school programs in science, developing a community STEM network by hosting scientific seminars and Gala events, sponsoring grants to promote high school research, by dissemination of current research results through our annual meetings, as well as other occasional publications, the "Newsletter",  and lastly by co-hosting events with other organizations to disseminate the up-to-date STEM information to our community.

    NJ STEM Month Initiative

    NJAS Colloquium for LIFE (Leadership, Innovation, Fellowship, and Excellence) in STEM


    This virtual colloquium is an initiative of the NJ Academy of Science that aims at empowering middle school and high school students' perspectives on diverse scientific themes. The focus is to cultivate an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) or health sciences by providing a space for students to showcase their expository writing, art, topical presentation, or research initiative to our scientific community.

    NJAS is giving our youth a voice, as stated by Dr. Brion-Meisels, “listening to young people doesn’t mean unilaterally considering their perspective, it means recognizing that young people have a perspective on the world that adults can’t share, and that their perspective should be welcomed alongside the wisdom that adult perspectives bring.” For this reason, NJAS is excited to invite students from NJ to showcase their work at this colloquium.

    The colloquium is meant to raise a discussion regarding scientific cutting-edge topics and enhance STEM awareness by enhancing delivery of diverse scientific media styles. All (novice or expert) presenters  are welcome to present or showcase their scientific piece and gain feedback from the NJ Academy of Science community. 

    This NJ Academy of Science initiative is aim to build a support medium for students to establish relationships with their peers, teachers, NJAS community and people in their potential career field who can provide great support, friendship and growth. It can lead to professional relationships in their future. 

    Recognition: Students will receive a certificate from the NJ academy of Science and presenters will be introduced as the 1st class of LIFE inductees.

    Presenters: Students interested in presenting please submit your information here
