RANDOLPH, NJ – The Patriots’ Path Council Boy Scouts of America hosted its second STEM University for Boy Scouts Nov. 4 from across northern and central New Jersey in collaboration with County College of Morris. 

Scouts participated in a day of science, technology, engineering and mathematics-related activities at the CCM campus in Randolph, made possible by the support and continued partnership of both organizations.

“I learned that STEM is relevant in the world, we had so much fun,” said James Bermeo, a scout from Long Valley. “I give STEM University at CCM a 10 out of 10 experience, and I will definitely come again.”
