New Jersey Seeding Labs Chapter Hosts Kickoff Event and Fundraiser
Seeding Labs was founded by young scientists and we continue that tradition with a network of campus-based chapters. We believe in involving the next generation of scientists in the U.S. and abroad in all our work. After all, they are the ones who will use our equipment to make new discoveries and work together on projects we haven’t even begun to imagine.
We are thrilled to welcome our newest chapter, based at Rutgers University. They hosted a kickoff event in December to raise awareness of Seeding Labs and raise money towards their first project: supporting a shipment of equipment for the University of d’Abomey-Calavi in Benin. We hope this pairing between the Rutgers group and their counterparts in West Africa sparks some new relationships and scientific discussions to come.
Members of the Rutgers group shared a description and pictures of the event.
“The New Jersey branch of Seeding Labs held its first fundraising event, a happy hour at the Harvest Moon Brewery in New Brunswick, NJ. The event, featuring discounted drinks and appetizers, raised nearly two hundred dollars for seeding labs. Over 30 medical and graduate students turned out to help the effort and to enjoy a night of fun. These students got to learn about the purpose of Seeding Labs and to hear about other upcoming events we are planning.
Members of the group were proud to have the funds ready to send to Seeding Labs at our following meeting. At this meeting we not only discussed plans for more fundraising events, but also for equipment drives and having speakers come to talk with students. Overall, the fundraising event was very successful and an exciting first event for the New Jersey branch of Seeding labs.”
