Helpful summer links! Can't wait to see you all in September.
1)      Precollege.rutgers.edu - a searchable online directory listing Rutgers affiliated K-12 pre-college programs offered during the academic year and summer. Students and parents can search by keyword, grade level, or location to find programs of interest!

2)      MyRutgersFuture.rutgers.edu – a free, customizable online student portal for high school students that provides an opportunity to select majors and career interests, register for upcoming events and tours on campus, and enter grade information through our Self-Reported Academic Record (which can then be used for the Rutgers University application). The RUonTarget feature on the portal also provides an in-depth look at the student's Self-Reported Academic Record to assess the likelihood of the student gaining potential admission to the university based on grade information provided. It’s a great resource to use in collaboration with school counselors.





  • Contributions to science can be made and have been made by people the world over.
  • The scientific questions asked, the observations made, and the conclusions in science are to some extent influenced by the existing state of scientific knowledge, the social and cultural context of the researcher and the observer's experiences and expectations.
  • The history of science reveals both evolutionary and revolutionary changes. With new evidence and interpretation, old ideas are replaced or supplemented by newer ones.
  • While science and technology do impact each other, basic scientific research is not directly concerned with practical outcomes, but rather with gaining an understanding of the natural world for its own sake.
