Rutgers Student Organization of Academic Research in STEM provides students a space to start dialogues with members in the field of STEM. This mainly focuses on discussing research in the field but also provides career preparation and success through mentorship. SOARS meetings will primarily consist of students reading research papers, analyzing it, and creating presentations to present to their peers. SOARS will also host events with individuals who are experts in a particular field of STEM, present their research that interests them in a journal symposium style. This will encourage dialogue and serve as motivation for the club members to create similar presentations. Due to the pandemic, SOARS will be hosting a series of webinars based on students requested needs, this includes “How to get research opportunities”, “How to break down a research paper”, “Why is research important.” For more information visit https://rutgers.campuslabs.com/engage/organization/RUSOARS or email firstname.lastname@example.org
