New Jersey Science Education Leadership Association

ABOUT: NJSELA is dedicated to improving science education and leadership in New Jersey

HISTORY: In 1967, an informal meeting of K-12 science supervisors was called together by Don Peck of Scotch Plains and Fred Laspe of Millburn to discuss mutual concerns. This led to a formal organizational meeting in 1968 in Trenton in the office of Ken Fowler, State Consultant in Science. The organization was named the New Jersey Science Supervisors Association. Twenty four founding members attended with Don elected as the first President of NJSSA. Dues were set at $2.00. The rest is history.
