The Citizen STEM Initiative Award

It’s always wonderful to see brands that we partner with investing in our youth.  Recently, The Citizen STEM Initiative Award competition challenged grade nine students throughout the state of New Jersey to create 90-second videos highlighting their favorite aspect of physics.

New-York-City-Skyline

It’s certainly impressive that the winner’s submission, created by Gabrielle Grupenhof from Oradell, New Jersey, outlined ways to calculate the acceleration of a car speeding down the highway.   Gabrielle, along with the three runners-up (announced and sponsored by the New Jersey Center for Teaching and Learning) were treated to a pretty amazing day at New York City’s Good Housekeeping Research Institute, including a personal tour of the space. The students also received awards of CTO watches from the Citizen Watch Drive Collection, and a celebratory lunch alongside their teachers and parents in New York City.

It’s wonderful to see the encouragement of students excelling in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) – which in many ways, is our future.
