This year's program featured new technologies
and challenges. Student work included rocketry, computer programing, 3-D printing, robot design, construction and testing. The four professional public school teachers leading the instruction
were supported by the STEM Office and
engineer volunteers.

The program included a briefing in which students demonstrated what they learned to their parents and interested visitors.

Picatinny engineers showcased their area of
STEM expertise, including logistics, nanotechnology,
3-D printing and various fields of engineering.

Among the visitors to the program was
Brig. Gen. Alfred Abramson, senior commander
at Picatinny Arsenal and the Program Executive Officer Ammunition.

The Picatinny Arsenal STEM office and the
Child & Youth Services join forces each summer
to provide this program. This year it "sold out"
in just a few hours.
