A Morning w/ Citizen STEM Award Winners & Good Housekeeping

I recently attended a tour of Good Housekeeping's Research Institute at Hearst Tower as part of a group from the New Jersey Center for Teaching & Learning. The NJCTL, an independent non-profit that focuses on empowering teachers & students in STEM training, hosted a contest with Citizen for 9th grade physics students in New Jersey, and the four winners & their families were invited to NYC to take part in the tour.

With four (potential) future engineers in the room, the NJCTL wanted to demonstrate the many possibilities in the engineering field, and the kind of work performed at Good Housekeeping's Research Institute is an excellent example. I found the tour fascinating; did you know that Good Housekeeping stopped taking cigarette ads 12 YEARS before the Surgeon General's report on the effects of smoking came out? Good Housekeeping's engineers & technologists are proud of the research behind their Seal of Approval, as well they should be!

Congrats to the following winners (who were also gifted with a CTO watch from the Citizen Watch Drive collection):

Gabrielle Grupenhof, River Dell High School
Desire Trudy Walker, 9th Grade Academy, Trenton
MacKenzie Szabo, Secaucus High School
Isaac Hyungwoo Yi, Bergen Tech

Interested in learning more about the NJCTL? They offer free course materials on their website that are available for download, from kindergarten through 8th grade algebra & beyond! Summer vacation is coming up, after all...
