Arthur L. Johnson High School AWIS_CJC “Adopt a River ” team completes a year.

Clark school

“Adopt a river” initiative was started by New Jersey chapter for Association for Women in Science to give high school students an opportunity to initiate and get involved in scientific projects that have a social impact. Simultaneously, the students get an opportunity to demonstrate scientific skills that involve team work and interaction with peers and experts.

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.
