The middle school students were very lucky to be able to listen and learn about research methods in regards to public policy and the laws surrounding them. Dr. Hetling, a Rutgers professor and social scientist, caught the ears of the middle school students by discussing how her research had positively impacted society. They were also eager to hear how she played a key role in working with the new governor, Murphy, in working with the past governor in transferring policies and key information that effect all of us in a daily basis. Dr. Hetling also touched home by talking about future college possibilities for the students. Overall, the students had a great time, learned a lot, and asked many great questions that lead to a discussion that will be remembered.
