Outreach

Since 2003, the chapter has sponsored prizes in the Jersey Shore Science Fair in the Behavioral Science Category. Middle and high school students from all over South Jersey present projects at Richard Stockton College of New Jersey. The chapter presents awards in each of the junior, intermediate, and senior age groups and invites the winners to present their projects to a special meeting of the chapter. This annual event is one of the highlights of the year and gives both the students and the members a very rewarding experience.

Since 2006, the chapter has also sponsored prizes for the Student Invention Through Education (SITE) program that highlights the talents of student inventors from around New Jersey.

Past chapter presidents Tanya Yuditsky and Kenneth Allendoerfer were named to the HFES National Ergonomics Month Honor Roll for their efforts in promoting the field in the South Jersey community.
