HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - Triangle Elementary School third-grader Arjun Buch will join outstanding elementary school students from across the nation to take part in a unique academic development experience, the National Youth Leadership Forum (NYLF): Pathways to STEM, taking place this summer in Trenton, NJ. 
 
NYLF Pathways to STEM is one of the Envision family of programs (www.envisionexperience.com) that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom.
 
 
Buch was nominated to attend the forum by his third grade teacher at Triangle Elementary School.
 
He is classified as a black belt tae Kwon Do and loves football and will be playing flag football for the JR. Raiders in the fall.

Buch is also an avid reader, enjoys playing play chess and plays recreational golf and basketball.

He won Student of the Month in May in JEI Hillsborough. He also loves to gain leadership in investigation and solve mysteries. Last summer he was in the ID camp in Princeton where he coded and built a video game.
 
His classmate Isabella Ruh will also also attend the program
.
“NYLF Pathways to STEM is a great opportunity for high-achieving scholars to get outside the classroom and see, through hands-on interactive learning, how to innovate and think creatively,” said Andrew Potter, the Chief Academic Officer for Envision. “These students, who have already proven themselves academically, are challenged to work on real-world, student-created projects to bring their studies and career interests to life.”
 
Since 1985, Envision programs have served more than 800,000 students in more than 145 countries, with programs designed to help students develop the leadership, scholarship and career skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive college and career landscape.
