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

d eighth graders in the lab to conduct a series of "real world" scientific experiments, including:

  • "I Can't Believe I ate the Whole Thing," where students titrated unknown antacids using indicators and a pH meter to determine the strength;
  • "Working with Solutions," where teams prepare and explore various physical properties of solutions;
  • "Ouch!!! How do Sunscreens Work," where students analyze active ingredients in commercial sunscreens and prepare their own formulation;
  • "Time to go Green," where students use density and solubility to identify polystyrene from a variety of unknown plastics and the viscosity and molecular weight to determine if the material is suitable to be recycled into CD cases.

"It is a rare opportunity for students to see what goes on behind the doors of scientific labs, but through our partnership with Daiichi Sankyo, we are providing a glimpse of what a career in the field of science means in terms young students can easily understand," said Paul A. Winslow, Ph.D., President and Co-Founder of Students 2 Science. "The students and the lab mentors share a common bond of passion for science, and we enjoy providing an opportunity for each to inspire one another."

"Scientific curiosity and discovery are the foundation of the pharmaceutical industry and are what leading companies like ours count on to make scientific breakthroughs in medicine," said John Gargiulo, President and CEO, Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. "With dramatic successes in the battles against heart disease, cancer and other previously untreated diseases, mentoring, inspiring and supporting young students is part of our company's responsibility to sustain and nurture innovation."

S2S' East Hanover facility houses approximately 4,000 sq feet of commercial laboratory space equipped with state of the art instrumentation to perform wet chemistry, organic chemistry, chromatography, spectroscopy, bio
