National 4-H Week

Posted: Updated:

October 7-13 is National 4-H Week. This is a time to celebrate the community impact youth are producing across the nation. 

University of Nebraska- Lincoln Extension offices encourage 4-H members to share their 4-H pride through activities. 

National Youth Science Day

In Hall County, there will be a Science Day Experiment at the UNL Extension Office located in College Park. The event is Oct. 9 from 6-7 p.m., youth will design an eco-bot that will clean up toxic spills. 

The eco-bot is made from a toothbrush head, a motor and a battery. Each team will design a prototype and test their eco-bot on the challenge mat. Birdseed will represent the spill. At the end of 2 minutes, contestants will count the number of squares their eco-bot cleared and then attempt to change their design in order to clean more of the spill. 

Using data they collect, it will be determined which eco-bot did the best job cleaning up the spill.
