School Tours

The MSLC provides tours for school children in grades 2 through 12. During the visit students and teachers will have the opportunity to experience STEM disciplines in a college environment. Visitor will have the opportunity to interact with Rutgers faculty, graduate and undergraduate students to learn about on going research projects at Rutgers. Tours include scientific demonstrations in the STEM disciplines and visits to our Exhibit Hall with its hands-on demonstrations. Groups should plan on spending approximately ~ two hours at the center. The MSLC can provide a lunch room if your group wishes to bring bag lunches. Tour days are on Friday mornings when Rutgers classes are in session. 

Please contact Dr. Patricia Irizarry at 848-445-3442 if you are interested in bringing your class or group to the MSLC.

The MSLC provides an arena ideally suited to bringing University faculty together with K-12 teachers, working toward making the transition between precollege and college science teaching as seamless as possible.   If you are interested in professional development programs tailored to the specific needs of your school, please contact Dr. Patricia Irizarry at 848-445-3442.

Teacher Testimonial

Thank you for presenting an outstanding lesson to our fifth graders last Friday. It was a pleasure to meet you and a privilege to have my students participate in the Math and Science Learning Center activities. You are to be commended for your unique ability to make this Biology lesson so accessible and fascinating to our group. The students were truly enthralled with the entire annelid experience! You helped them to make a tangible connection to college; you’ve inspired them and set many on the path to establishing and setting a goal for future academic success. We are sincerely grateful to you for your time and experience-please know that you have made a significant difference in the lives of these students!

Student Testimonials

Dear Dr. Torres,
Thank you so much for a wonderful morning of worms lessons. It was really fun, and I had a great time learning about leeches and earthworms. The part that I liked the most was when we examined living earthworms. I actually touched them! I also now know how to tell which side is the head of the worm. I found the lessons very interesting! Our time there was greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Yours truly,
Nataly

Dear Dr. Torres,
It was so cool learning about the leeches and the earthworms. The thing I now know about leeches is that they suck your blood. And the thing I learned about earthworms is where their head and feet are. Even if I did find it gross it was amazing! I can’t wait to go the Rutgers!!
Sincerely,
Jasmine
