Webcast Beta Testing - Are You Interested?
Can't come to New Jersey for an Open House? We're working to bring the Open House programs to you! We presently are testing systems to webcast these events. Before going 'live' we want to make sure we have the 'bugs' out.

Interested in participating in the beta testing? If so, we need a few people the next couple of months who are available on the First Friday evening from 6-8:00+ eastern time and are willing to give feedback and suggestions. If you would like to help, please contact SCIProject@biology.rutgers.eduto be a part of an upcoming test group. Thank you!
