Participants will play educational games, win prizes, interact with mentors who are successful STEM members, and enjoy a lunch that will be provided at the event. The free event is open to Somerset County residents ONLY. Applications must be received by Oct. 4. To obtain an application form visit www.co.somerset.nj.us/STEM.
