MORRISTOWN, NJ - Ten Unity Charter School students were recently nominated to take part in planning a “Mission to Mars” with the National Youth Leadership Forum (NYLF).  During the summer, NYLF offers students a unique learning experience for bright, forward-thinking middle school students who will evolve into our next generation of innovators, engineers, doctors, forensic scientists, mathematicians, and physicists.

During the six-day immersive experience, students learn by doing as they take part in hands-on simulations, workshops, and competitions. They explore robotics and programming, medicine, forensic science, civil engineering and the future of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

“Technology is advancing at a record-setting pace, and the workforce needs to reflect this trend. The jobs of the future, no matter the industry or level, are no doubt going to involve at least a rudimentary knowledge of technology. Those who enter a STEM profession will have a leg-up in the new economy,” said John Challenger, chief executive officer of global outplacement and executive coaching firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc.
