Anatomy Lab - 2014
On April 26, 2014, the Saturday Scholars students attended an Anatomy Lab that was facilitated by Wiley Lopez and Jorge Rocha of the Mini Med School Initiative at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School on Busch Campus at Rutgers University. Students that attended this lab were given the opportunity to learn about the human heart, brain, liver, knee, and skeletal structures. They were also introduced to the types of surgical interventions that can take place for individuals needing transplants and replacement surgeries. An in-depth discussion was held at each learning station highlighting each organ or system, further developing the student’s understanding of the human anatomy The students received an amazing hands-on learning experience and were thrilled to be given an opportunity to become more familiar with anatomy, science, and the medical field in general. It was a terrific learning experience for all!
Chemistry Lab - 2014
On April 12, 2014, the 11th grade Johnson & Johnson Saturday Scholars program participants from the New Brunswick public school district participated in a Chemistry Lab that was facilitated by Dr. Robert Porcja with the Rutgers Chemistry Department. During this lab, students learned about the chemical mixing of solutions and determining how strong or weak the resulting solutions are. They also conducted a laboratory experiment where they analyzed the presence of iron in foods. The chemistry lab created a rich and interactive environment for our high school students. Dr. Porcja and his wonderful team of assistants made chemistry concepts that are typically difficult for high school students to relate to not only educationally attainable, but hands-on and entertaining as well.
Biology Lab - 2013
On October 26, 2013, the 11th grade Johnson & Johnson Saturday Scholars program participants from the New Brunswick public school district attended a Biology Lab at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School on Busch Campus at Rutgers University. This lab was conducted by the SNMA organization here at Rutgers University and provided students with a hands-on learning experience. Students had the opportunity to participate in four different small learning centers that discussed human anatomy and allowed them to physically see and handle human organs including the heart, brain, lung, and liver.
