About BASCS and the event-

The Bergen Arts and Science Charter School’s (BASCS) mission is to provide the ideal environment for the intellectual and social development of its students by utilizing a combined effort of students, educators, families, and the community as a whole.

We believe that an effective and adequate education necessary for the citizens of the future relies heavily on a multidimensional academic curriculum in which all core subjects will be blended together through various teaching methods while promoting the development of a strong character that supports and respects society. We also believe that focusing on an overall high academic achievement includes providing opportunities for individual skills and talents to develop to higher levels.

BASCS fosters an atmosphere that promotes enthusiasm on the part of BASCS teachers and students alike, through the challenging academic program, interesting co-curricular activities, and positive rewards for success, resulting in students who seek further challenges and have the desire to continue on the educational path. Our students exhibit the love of learning to the extent of choosing challenging, even competitive academic activities.

It was a great experience to be able to see the involvement and the dedication of school students to science. I am happy I was invited for the program as a judge, it was my first time but certainly not the last. Soon I will be part of the NYC high school science projects group.
