Arthur L. Johnson High School Association of Women in Science Test the Waters

The ALJ chapter of AWIS Credits: Clark Public Schools
GARWOOD, NJ - On Monday, November 10, 2014, the Arthur L. Johnson High School chapter of Association of Women in Science (AWIS) and their advisors, Mrs. Linda Bianco, Mrs. Jenette Morse, and Mrs. Dannie Vaccari, conducted water testing at a brook in Garwood as part of the “Adopt a River” program. ALJ’s chapter of AWIS is the first high school 
chapter in New Jersey and is working to expose girls to careers in the sciences.
The objective of the “Adopt a River” program is to get high school students involved in local ecological conservation projects. ALJ’s students tested water for temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, BOD (Biochemical Oxygen Demand), nitrate, phosphate, turbidity, and coliform bacteria. These tests will be repeated throughout the year and shared at a statewide presentation at the end of the year. 
AWIS is a national advocacy organization representing interests of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) across all disciplines and employment sectors. AWISNJ, the regional chapter, promotes the advancement of women into leadership roles, where they serve as leaders, role models, and mentors.

That’s because it’s the furthest walk to the center of camp. Troop 77 knows that Blackfoot is the best campsite at Sabattis.
