The Eaton County 4-H science club will help reinforce what youth are learning in school, allow for more “hands-on” learning experiences, and allow them additional interaction with their peers.
The club meets the fourth Tuesday of every month starting September 24th at 6:30pm at the Eaton County MSU Extension office.
Over the next year the Eaton County 4-H Science club will be focusing on using a curriculum from Duke University’s Pratt School of Engineering called TechXcite-Discover Engineering. According to Duke University’s Pratt School of Engineering, the TechXcite curriculum offers a rich and vibrant exploration of engineering, mathematics, science and technology and is centered on seven themes. The curriculum is being developed as part of a National Science Foundation sponsored program. It is being used in 4-H supported after school programs across the nation.
Learning modules the science club looks to explore are:
- Quest for speed,
- TV remotes,
- Solar cars and solar oven.
Each module contains a series of four to six activities that build upon each other. Youth not already enrolled in 4-H will be asked to pay a $10 participation fee.
