Fourth-Graders Become Big Kids on Campus

On Jan. 17, three-dozen fourth graders from East Newark Public School received a taste of college life during a visit with the Bergen Community College information technology department. As part of “technology day,” the grade-schoolers arrived at the College’s Paramus campus to learn about computer hardware and web development in hands-on lessons led by Bergen’s information technology department chair professor Bill Madden and professor Anita Verno (pictured). The day not only reinforced work that began in the students’ classroom during “computer science education week” last month, but also introduced the fourth-graders to a college campus and offered computer access to the young community members with limited technologyresources.

Bergen Community College (www.bergen.edu) based in Paramus is a public two-year coeducational college, enrolling nearly 17,000 students at locations in Paramus, the Philip J. Ciarco Jr. Learning Center in Hackensack and Bergen Community College at the Meadowlands in Lyndhurst. The College offers associate degree, certificate and continuing education programs in a variety of fields.
