Members of the Union County 4-H Teen Service Club volunteered as docents recently at the Rutgers Geology Museum for a National Science Foundation program called In Search of Earth’s Secrets: A Pop-Up Science Encounter.
The students helped visitors navigate the interactive exhibits, as part of a collaborative project including the Rutgers University Department of Marine & Coastal Science, the New Brunswick Free Public Library, and the Girl Scouts of Central & Southern New Jersey.

Union County 4-H is a learn-by-doing youth development program run by the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Union County, supported in part by the Freeholder Board.
