There will be three new After School STEM Clubs in April and May open to all students in 3rd-5th grade.  Washington County Extension & 4-H and Lincoln Elementary are partnering together with a sponsorship from Bazooka Farmstar and Premier 1 Supplies to offer additional and fun ways for Washington youth to interact with more science in a hands-on setting while making new friends and connecting with caring adults in the community.  This club 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.


There are three STEM Clubs held at the Lincoln Elementary library from 3:30pm-5pm.  Participants will have a healthy snack after school, connect with new friends and experience hands-on science investigations.    Each club will explore a different type of engineering with their unique engineering challenges.  Club 1 will run April 16-18 with the title “Taking the Plunge: Designing Submersibles”.   Club 2 is April 22-25 with the title “To Get to the Other Side: Building Bridges”.  Club 3 is May 6-9 with the title “Recycled Racers”. 


Registrations accepted on a first come, first serve basis online until sessions are full.  Students may register for one or all STEM clubs.      There is a $10 fee for each club.  Registration for all three clubs can be found at
