Did you know our local 4H clubs are run by Purdue Extension Educators? 4‑H science programs are available through local Monroe County clubs, and now through our schools at R-BB as we are now partnering with our Purdue Extension Educators in all grades K-5! Your child can join for after-school fun AND maintain a year-long 4H membership to explore other program opportunities throughout the year!
Focus areas for 4‑H science programs include robotics, rocketry, environmental science, agri-science, biotechnology and veterinary science with students of all school ages! Special events like National Youth Science Day are special ways 4H is highlighting all science industries with our students! Do you love science and fun science activities? 4-H National Youth Science Day (NYSD) is the world’s largest youth-led science experiment and this year all R-BB fifth graders will be participating in the this year's project, titled Incredible Wearables This challenge engages students and challenges them to build a wearable fitness tracker of their own. This year's 4‑H NYSD event will take place on Wednesday, October 4, 2017.
Contact your school's STEAM Coach for more information about the ways 4H is getting involved with science education throughout R-BB!
