January 3, 2012 — Future Demand for Science Talent

The latest report out of the New Jersey Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education Coalition suggests that nearly 270,000 new jobs in STEM-related fields will need to be filled by 2018 in the Garden State. Can you see yourself working in a laboratory or in some other scientific career? Students 2 Science, a nonprofit organization in East Hanover, is partnering with schools like Newark Science Park High School and companies like Daiichi Sankyo, a pharmaceutical firm, to bring students to a commercial laboratory to work alongside science professionals. For more information on STEM career exploration, like S2S’s “A Day in the Life of a Scientist” program, visit http://www.students2science.org.
