On March 25th, the New Jersey STEM Pathways Network and the Research & Development Council of New Jersey celebrated NJ STEM Month with a STEM Fair at the State House in Trenton.
The fair gave several STEM organizations from across the state the opportunity to meet with legislators and staff and showcase their work within New Jersey’s STEM pipeline.
WeMake 4-H, a nonprofit youth-run STEM organization from Edison, represented Middlesex County 4-H at the STEM Fair and were presented with the STEM Civic Leadership award. For over three years WeMake 4-H has conducted free hands-on workshops at various public places such as libraries, community centers, Boys and Girls Clubs, and 4H centers on Coding, Making, and general electronics to spread STEM/Maker Education among kids. Rishabh Rout and Hersh Ranpura represented the club at the fair. They met with many senators and legislators there and discussed about the programs and efforts that promote STEM education in New Jersey.
