Starting in January, the College of Engineering at Rowan University, Glassboro, N.J., along with the New Jersey Academy of Aquatic Sciences and Cumberland County College, will use Camden-based Adventure Aquarium to teach freshman and K-12 students as well about science and engineering. The program is funded through a $150,000 grant from the National Science Foundation. Faculty and students under Kauser Jahan, chair of Rowan's civil and environmental engineering program, will develop instrumentation for a 100-gallon tank to measure dissolved oxygen and pH levels, outfit a distance-learning classroom at the aquarium and develop experiments and presentations that users can access from classrooms by Internet. NJAAS will provide real-time data and visuals of the aquarium through its website under the title “NJ-Quarium.”
