BROOKLYN, N.Y. – January 27, 2016 - The Department of Physical Sciences at St. Joseph’s College (SJC), in partnership with the New York Section of the American Chemical Society, is pleased to announce its 21st Annual High School Poster Session on Saturday, February 6 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Tuohy Hall Auditorium at SJC Brooklyn.

“St. Joseph’s College is delighted to once again partner with the New York Section of the American Chemical Society for this year's High School Poster Session,” said Dr. Jill Rehmann, vice president for academic affairs at SJC Brooklyn. “This event provides aspiring young scientists with a unique opportunity to showcase their research, meet like-minded peers, and gain first-hand insight from a group of professional judges and researchers.”

The keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Tina Zottoli, assistant professor of psychology at Montclair State University. Dr. Zottoli is a NYS licensed clinical psychologist who provides psychological assessment, expert testimony and consultation in civil and criminal court cases. Dr. Zottoli's expertise is in adolescent neurocognitive development and decision making, especially as applied to legal contexts. She maintains an active research program centered on questions relevant to criminal and juvenile justice policy and her main focus is currently on the decision making of youth who are offered plea deals in criminal (adult) court.

This event is free and open to the public, and will showcase over 100 research projects undertaken by some of the finest young scientific minds in the five boroughs. Judges from both academia and the private sector will evaluate the posters and research, and, following their deliberations, four students will be selected as winners and receive Barnes and Noble gift cards.
