WABI Covers 4-H Science Saturday

WABI (Channel 5) reported on a University of Maine 4-H Science Saturday workshop at UMaine’s Climate Change Institute. About a dozen children in grades six through eight helped design a canister to keep ice core samples gleaned from the Peruvian Andes frozen and intact for research. “Kids were eager to give me a recommendation on how to design and pack my ice to bring it back,” said Charles Rodda, a UMaine graduate student and 4-H STEM Ambassador who will travel to Peru on a research expedition in March. “Certainly some of those ideas are going to be incorporated in how we bring back our ice.”
