April 25 the 4-H STEM Club hosted their final Project Showcase for community members and family members to see what the 26 members had learned and experienced with this month’s lessons about computer science. Youth were excited to spend more time with the bee bots and dash robots as well as create a fun presentation for their guests.


Washington County Extension & 4-H partnered together with a sponsorship from Bazooka Farmstar to offer this 4-H STEM Club to any 3rd-5th grade students who want to experiment more with science, technology, engineering, and math. The March and April sessions are being led by volunteers Liz Goodwin, Julie Timmins and Extension 4-H Staff Amy Green.


Since January, through the 4-H Afterschool STEM CLUB, there has been over 450 hours of hands-on science completed in the Lincoln Elementary School Library with students 3rd-5th grade. They have learned about wind energy, mechanical engineering, wheel and axel systems, coding, brain safety, helmet design, team work and problem solving.


STEM Club has concluded for hti syear, but the Washington County Extension’s summer day camp program, Clover University, is taking registrations. The complete listing of 25 camp offerings in five different communities is available at http://www.extension.iastate.edu/washington/news/clover-university-summer-camps-registration-open.
