Program Kick-off – BTE-Norristown, a partnership with Norristown Area High School (Norristown, PA) Janssen, Inc. (Malvern, PA), and Montgomery County Community College (Blue Bell, PA) kicked off in fall 2017 with 40 students.  To date, over 30 Johnson & Johnson employees have volunteered their time to mentor students, provide facility tours, and lead activities centered around college and career exploration and preparation.

Team Building: Students and Career Coaches participated in a team building day at Janssen in Malvern, PA in October.  The day included several team challenges, including a design-build challenge using only paper and tape.

 R&D Tour at Janssen: Students and Career Coaches toured research labs at Janssen in Malvern in November.

Manufacturing Slime: In December students experienced the manufacturing process by gowning up and “manufacturing” slime.  They also were able to take a virtual tour of Janssen Malvern’s manufacturing facility.
