As you make plans for your 4-H clubs, afterschool programs and science clubs this coming school year, please take a moment to consider a visit to the University of Maine! Please contact your county Extension 4-H Staff who work closely with our Maine 4-H Science Professionals assisting to match a UMaine offering to the needs of your youth.
Some example offerings include:
- Advanced Structures and Composites/Wind Power
- Engineering (all types)
- Marine Science
- Pest Management (Insects!)
While many of these experiences are at the University of Maine campus in Orono, faculty and graduate students are willing to travel to YOUR location!
As always, if you have youth interested in a topic that is not on this short list, please let us know.
In 2013/2014, we also will have some special offerings… including an opportunity to connect with a researcher on an Arctic climate change research trip, and opportunities to spend a Saturday exploring a science topic at UMaine. Details on these will be shared as soon as the programs are set.
