Saturday, December 7, 2019: Saturday Session

On Saturday, December 7, 2019, all Upward Bound & Upward Bound Math-Science scholars participated in their monthly Saturday Academy in the Lucy Stone Hall Building (Livingston Campus at Rutgers University). Scholars got the opportunity to learn about academic best practices through workshops and grade based seminars. Some workshops available on this day were: National Arts Facet Competition, AP Exam Strategies, and the Academic Transition workshop. Upward Bound Scholars got the opportunity to learn more about how to “dress to impress” from an undergraduate college student. Upward Bound Scholars also got the opportunity to learn more about the academic transition from high school to college. Upward Bound Math-Science scholars got the opportunity to learn more about international medicine, the causes and effects of diabetes, and participated in a Marshmallow Tower Challenge. This experience allowed scholars to learn about essential skills necessary in order to succeed in an academic setting and network with college student and industry professionals.
