UNION COUNTY – Science and agricultural education majors are being sought by the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Union County as volunteers to lead summer science day camps in Plainfield, Rahway and Elizabeth. The day camps run through the months of June, July and August, and provide science activities that are both educational and entertaining.
“By making science fun and engaging, the summer enrichment program gets kids excited about learning through unique hands-on experiences,” said Freeholder Board Chairman Alexander Mirabella.
Recent Union County 4-H Summer Science activities have included the physics of toys, earthquake-proof buildings made of toothpicks, and constructing boats to learn about flotation. The program is intended for children in first grade and older.
Training will be provided for volunteers, and those donating at least 300 hours from June 1 to Sept. 1 will be compensated with a $2,000 stipend and a $1,175 education credit. To apply, or for additional information contact 4-H agent James Nichnadowicz at 1-908-654-9854 or via email at Nichnadowicz@njaes.rutgers.edu.
