Local Partnership Addresses Lagging Scores and Interest in Science and Math Among Students
Date:5/20/2011

EAST HANOVER, N.J. and PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- During a 'Day of Science,' more than 30 middle school students from Newark Science Park High School experienced what it was like to be scientists for a day during a behind-the-scenes mentoring program hosted by Students 2 Science, Inc. (S2S). The "A Day in the Life of a Scientist" program is one of many integrated full-year science education programs offered by S2S that seeks to address the fact that American high school students lag significantly behind other industrialized nations in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects. This particular initiative provides middle and high school students the opportunity to work directly with science professionals to perform hands-on experiments using sophisticated laboratory instruments. Through funding and mentoring support provided in-part from Daiichi Sankyo, Inc., S2S developed the program, purchased laboratory supplies and provided teacher stipends for curriculum development work.

New research from The National Math and Science Initiative showed that only a fraction of American college undergraduate students (five percent) go on to earn college degrees in science and engineering, compared to 42 percent of college undergraduates in China, for example. According to a study conducted in 2009 by the National Assessment of Educational Progress, 78 percent of eighth-graders and 79 percent of twelfth-graders did not meet expected science proficiency scores. Scores in the STEM subjects typically decline in urban-area schools in the U.S., where a lack of access to technical professionals, laboratory space and scientific instrumentation hold back learning opportunities and stifle young students' thirst for scientific exploration.

During the 'Day of Science', students were mentored by professionals, including research scientists, health economics experts and medical fellows from Daiichi Sankyo, who worked alongside the seventh an
