Trent Schriefer, University of Maine’s Cooperative Extension 4-H Science professional, will speak at the York County Extension Association’s Annual Meeting in Springvale on Wednesday, October 16 at 6:30 pm. The public is warmly invited to attend the free event.
The evening’s program, 4-H Flight Command, highlights the world of youth learning in the hands-on environment of 4-H Science. Schriefer invites the audience to accept the mission to discover the exciting, fun and hands-on world of flight and 4-H Science. The journey begins in the 4-H Flight Command Center where the images, sounds and language of space flight become real. During the program, audience members will have the opportunity to build and fly foam gliders, earning their 4-H Flight wings.
