To keep things clean, we create a new folder called libs in our project and then move lwjgl in there like in the picture. Setting a uniform is almost similar to setting a vertex attribute, you get the location first and then you set it. For a more complete math library you may want to take a look at the java opengl math library joml which you can also add in the lwjgl download tool.
