Launched in the spring of 2007, the BIO Links program provides School of Graduate Studies graduate students and Rutgers postdoctoral fellows the opportunity to volunteer their time in local public schools teaching science. We currently volunteer at New Brunswick Middle School and New Brunswick High School.
BIO Links is a partnership between Rutgers graduate students and postdocs, and science teachers at local public schools. Our dedicated volunteers are paired with a science teacher within a local school, and they make a commitment to visit one class per week for nine weeks. Some past volunteers have decided to continue visiting the classrooms well beyond the nine-week commitment.
