UNION COUNTY, NJ - This summer’s 4-H Science Week at Rutgers University featured a wide variety of projects, including a sustainability-themed experiment in dividing reclaimed concrete to make landscaping blocks. Science Week is a statewide program designed to encourage young people to pursue careers in science, under scholarships provided by Samsung. Three students from Union County received Science Week scholarships this year: Osaze Morris, Sean Penaranda and Christopher Morris, all of whom attend Rahway High School.

In Union County, 4-H also offers a wide variety of clubs for students in grades 1-12 which meet once a month during the school year. 4-H clubs enable students to develop important life skills while exploring popular activities including Lego robotics, archery, cooking and much more.

Union County 4-H is a program of the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Union County, supported in part by the Board of Chosen Freeholders. For more information about 4-H clubs in Union County, contact 4-H agent James Nichnadowicz at the Extension offices, (908) 654-9854 or Nichnadowicz@njaes.rutgers.edu, or visit ucnj.org/rce.
