Congratulations to STEM Senior, Giovanni Olaya, of the Computer Science pathway!
Giovanni is 1 of nearly 130 state-wide of a vast selection of students from grades 10 to doctoral level to have been selected for the Governor’s STEM Scholar award. The STEM Scholar students acquire the opportunity to connect with STEM professionals and experts, learn about higher education and career pathways in STEM, participate in a STEM research project, and acquire important professional development skills.
Gio’s passions for research made him a top contender to receive the STEM Scholar nomination. In his research studies Gio has focused on the effects of language loss on immigrant populations in the United States. He has also worked on solution to better the implementation of public transportation via public policy, another passion of his. In his future Gio aspire to become a civil engineer working with the government and public infrastructure or working in public policy.
We look forwards as Giovanni paves his way as a future New Jersey STEM professional!
