Meg Draeger, CJ STEMM coordinator, appreciates the support shown by alumni, parents and colleagues who helped mentor science fair participants as well as judge at CJ's science fair. Draeger stresses the importance of the CJ STEMM program developing partnerships and relationships with professionals in STEMM careers because of the impact on students.
"Students gain practice communicating, organizing thoughts, and displaying professionalism during meeting with mentors. We are also privileged to have a talented group of professionals who are more than willing to share their time and knowledge with our students."
