Teens Use Mindfulness to Combat Depression

“Into Light” – Four Teens Use Mindfulness to Battle Depression

These four high school students used their mindfulness practice to battle their experiences of depression. They learned to take pauses to breathe, make friends with the present moment, reflect on and connect to themselves, feel gratitude, cultivate creativity, and discover freedom from their critical inner voice.

“Into Light” was created by Mindful Schools graduate and filmmaker, Julie Bayer Salzman.

The 2019 New Jersey Junior Science & Humanities Symposium at Rutgers University

We are pleased to invite you and your school to participate in the Rutgers University Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, a science fair for high school students interested in science, mathematics, and technology research.  Students who have undertaken their own scientific research, underclassmen who intend to conduct research in the future, and high school teachers are invited to attend our symposium on the campus of Rutgers University’s School of Engineering in Piscataway, NJ.  This year’s Symposium will take place March 4 - 5, 2019. 
Students who have conducted scientific research submit research papers to the competitive portion of our program. These students must submit abstracts of 200 words or less detailing their work by December 1, 2018. By December 15, 2018 students must also submit a short video (2 minute maximum) presenting their answers to the following questions: (1) What did you know about your research? (2) What did you not know about your research? (3) Why is your research important? They then must submit full research papers of their work by January 4, 2019 (All Teacher/Student Registrations are due on January 4, 2018 as well).  Based on the research papers, our panel of judges selects up to 20 of the top students as Finalists, who are chosen to give oral presentations of their work at our symposium in March. 
The judges will also select up to 50 other students as Poster Finalists, who will give poster presentation of their work at our symposium. Oral Finalists compete for up to 3 all-expense paid trips to the 2019 National Symposium, as well as Scholarships of $2,000; $1,500; or $1,000. The top 2 Poster Finalists compete for 2 all-expense paid trips to nationals and additional prizes.
Students who have not yet conducted research or are just beginning projects are welcome to attend the symposium as observers. On the first day of the symposium (March 4, 2018), all student researchers and sponsoring teachers participate in the symposium. On the second day (March 5, 2018), all student researchers, observers, and sponsoring teachers participate in the symposium. The first day will consist of the run-off presentation of the 20 oral finalists. At night, students will be treated to a formal dinner recognizing their scientific achievements, hear from a keynote speaker, and take part in team based math, science, and engineering challenges.  On the second day, the 5 oral finalists from the first day and 50 poster presenters will compete and prizes will be awarded.
