STEMM Kick-Off Workshop at the Middle Township Performing Arts Center in Cape May County

The renowned Dr. James Rosser, Jr. received a standing ovation after providing a high-quality Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) presentation to the staff and faculty at the Middle Township School District’s Performing Arts Center in Cape May County, New Jersey.  Dr. James “Butch” Rosser, Jr. MD FACS, also known as “Dr. Butch” (as seen on CNN and Fox News) a practicing physician and general surgeon introduced a new innovative STEMM program to the teachers during this presentation. 

Dr. Butch discussed techniques in preparing future STEMM students for college and careers using real world applications and technology to supplement and compliment the educational curriculum currently being used in the Middle Township School District.

He encouraged teachers to go that extra level for their students and introduced Stealth Learning during the Kick-off workshop which is a scientifically validated brain-based educational methodology that utilizes pop culture icons such as music, film and video games to enhance engagement and increase knowledge and skill transfer.  Those in attendance were inspired by Dr. Rosser’s words and encouraged for what will lie ahead and the possibilities for the future of their students in the field of science.

The new innovative STEMM Program in Cape May County was brought together through a strong commitment from the following Community Partnerships including Dr. James Rosser, Jr., Stealth Learning, the Middle Township School District, O.C.E.A.N., Inc. and the Concerned Citizens of Whitesboro, Inc.
