STEM Month


During the 2020-2021 school year, I was a senior at the Academy for Mathematics, Science, and Engineering (AMSE) in Rockaway, NJ. At AMSE, a STEM-focused four-year magnet high school program hosted at Morris Hills High School, participating in an extended internship senior year is a cornerstone of the learning process. Required to complete a STEM-related internship to graduate, Academy students are encouraged to seek out an internship they’re passionate about in a field of their choice. The internship, which must be conducted under the mentorship of an industry professional, must meet the New Jersey-approved standards for a work-based learning experience (WBL) through satisfying Career & Technical Education (CTE) standards and gaining experience with Career Ready Practices. Although the internship is normally required to be completed in-person, due to the pandemic remote internships were permitted for the 2020-2021 school year.
