One of Fairleigh Dickinson University’s strategic goals is to increase and diversify the pipeline of talented graduates in STEM. The Pre-Collegiate STEM Discovery program enrolls northern New Jersey middle and high school students from underserved districts in college-level science and math programs on the University’s Metropolitan campus throughout the academic year. Students enhance their STEM literacy through project-based learning and gain college-readiness skills. The program is provided at no cost to participants.
