4-H STEM Club Showcases Helmet Designs PDF Print E-mail

Twenty-six third-fifth graders participated in the February “Put a Lid on It” Afterschool STEM Club and presented to guests their creations March 1 at the Community Showcase. This group met for three Tuesdays afterschool at Lincoln Library working as biomedical engineers to design helmets.

 

They learned the important terms of criteria and constraints and how those impact what engineers do. Students watched a video showing the evolution of helmets and the many technologies that have improved them over the years and then were challenged with a certain budget and material choices to design a helmet that included the three critical parts. Small groups then designed, weighed, measured, redesigned, and tested on a mannequin.

 

This Afterschool 4-H STEM Club is sponsored by Bazooka Farmstar with support from Lincoln Elementary and lead volunteers Melanie Rothe and Janet Conrad. Contact the Extension Office if interested in assisting with future STEM clubs and activities.

 

The March/April STEM Club is full with the first meeting set for March 7 at Lincoln Library. Similar youth opportunities will be available through Washington County Extension’s Clover University this summer. Registration information will be available starting April 1.

This camp is open to any 3rd-5th grade student who wants to experiment more with science, technology, engineering, and math.

 

Each session will use an Engineering is Elementary and State 4-H curriculum facilitated by Liz Goodwin, Julie Timmins, and Amy Green. The March session will be March 7, 14, 28 titled “Catch the Wind”. Students will engineer sails and blades to catch the wind and turn it to power.

 

The April session scheduled for April 11, 18, 25 is titled “Robots on Parade” and students will focus on computer science. They will learn coding basics and program Bee Bots to complete unique parade routes and then advance to the Dot and Dash robots who are able to talk, sing, flash lights, dance and more.

Recycled Racers Rev Up at Lincoln Library PDF Print E-mail

4-H STEM Club turned piles of recycled materials into race car bodies and wheel systems on January 17 after school in the Lincoln Elementary Library. This group is learning about Go Green Engineering. Makiya Moyer, Kendall Hinrichsen and Jade Sheetz worked together to adapt a food box to be their car body.

 

The 30 participants moved through the engineering design process to ask, plan, design, build, test, and improve. This 4-H STEM Club will meet again January 24 to complete their recycled racer designs and test them on a variety of tracks and a final race down the halls. A community showcase is planned for January 24 at 4:30 p.m. to showcase what the students have learned and built in the “Go Green Engineering” sessions. Any community member is welcome to come learn more from these students and see their recycled racers in action.

 

 

Washington County Extension & 4-H and Lincoln Elementary are partnering together with a sponsorship from Bazooka Farmstar to offer this 4-H STEM Club to any 3rd-5th grade student who wants to experiment more with science, technology, engineering, and math.
