MURRAY HILL, NJ -- Students from Bergen County Technical High School were among approximately 200 students from 10 high schools from around New Jersey who were invited to Nokia Bell Labs in Murray Hill, NJ, on October 18. The visit was part of Nokia’s community outreach program to encourage young people to learn science, technology and engineering and math, so that they will be attracted to careers in STEM and create the technologies of tomorrow.

The 20 juniors and seniors toured the Bell Labs campus. They interacted with researchers and scientists, who discussed Bell Labs’ current Research and Development work in areas like 5G, new sensing technologies, augmented intelligence, virtual reality, and developing the first-ever LTE network on the moon.

The iconic Bell Labs, home to 9 Nobel Prizes, has invented technologies such as the transistor, laser, UNIX, optical communications and cellular telephone technologies throughout its 92-year history.
