Hunterdon Central's STEM Community Consortium invites students and parents to a STEAM Showcase on Wednesday June 7, from 6:00-8:00 PM in the IMC (off of Junction Road.) The showcase will feature Science, Technology, Engineering and Math exhibits by Hunterdon Central students, as well as projects that were created by students during the 2016 Summer Experience.
We hope you can join us to learn about robotics, 3-D printers, web design ... and much more!
Hunterdon Central's STEM Community Consortium is an initiative intended to bring real-life STEM experiences to students in our community. For more information, please click here.

: At our first meeting of the year, several students, community members, and HCRHS faculty were in attendance. The focus of the meeting was to gain insight of the goals and mission of the group. We heard from several Hunterdon Central students about their experiences and exposure to STEM skills and careers in their courses and extracurricular activities. The students were an integral component to the conversation that ensued about how to bring in professionals and incorporate them into the students’ experience at Central. We broke into five groups to begin planning for the events we are holding this spring. These events include classroom visitations by STEM professionals, a STEM career expo for students to explore the pathways to different careers, a STEAM student showcase for students to show off their talents in STEAM areas, and a grand opening event for the MakerSpace being built at Central. The meeting ended with a presentation by the Central’s FIRST Robotics Team 3637.
