Congratulations to Princeton Day School junior Daniel Tang, who was selected from a talented pool of applicants to participate in this summer's Governor's School of Engineering & Technology at the Rutgers University School of Engineering. In this highly selective and prestigious program, Daniel will be spending four weeks immersed in engineering and technology with other students with similar interests.
The Governor's School of Engineering & Technology is a summer program free of charge to accepted students, and made possible through sponsorship by Rutgers University, the State of New Jersey, corporate donors, Governor's School alumni, and a number of other donors.
This summer, Daniel and fellow scholars will be taking four academic classes, completing an intensive research and/or design project in a small group students, going on site visits to local corporations, and meeting talented peers and professionals from across the state. In Daniel's acceptance letter, Associate Director Jean Patrick Antoine writes, "In the Governor's School, we will be asking you to work very hard and go beyond the already outstanding work you've done in high school, but we are certain that the rewards will be more than worth the effort."
At the end of the program is the Governor's School Research Symposium, where students will have the opportunity to present their research to a lecture hall full of invited guests.
