 “Since the program’s inception, each year a Bloomfield College STEM student has been selected to participate in the research symposium. The application process is extremely competitive with over 100 students throughout New Jersey sending in applications. Our STEM students work hard to achieve their goals and this program not only gives them an opportunity to showcase their research but it gives them added confidence as they move through their undergraduate studies,” said Dr. Jim Murphy, chairperson for the Natural Science and Mathematics division.

Dr. Vogt worked with Shacquille for over four months on his research and was consistently impressed with his focus and determination throughout the process. “Conducting research is a difficult yet very rewarding experience. I was thrilled to work with such a talented student,” said Dr. Vogt.
