Wallington High School recently received new lab equipment that was donated by the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) as a result of Mrs. Barbara Safira’s participation in the Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) Program. The magnetic stirrer/hot plate will help students perform a variety of experiments in our Chemistry Lab. As part of this program, Mrs. Safira attended a six-week summer research program under the guidance of NJIT Professors. Mrs. Safira is a Teacher of Chemistry and Physics at Wallington High School, and she has participated in the RET Program for the past 5 years. She is also the moderator of our Engineering Club.
