Middle schoolers invited to explore engineering with UMaine Extension 4-H

Middle school students are invited to spend an afternoon learning about engineering at the next University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H Science Saturday event — this time on a Friday.

From 1–4 p.m. April 20 at Jenness Hall, UMaine biomedical engineering students will lead participants in discussions about programming stoplights and exploring innovative solutions to address common problems.

The event is open to students in grades six through eight. The maximum number of participants is 20. Children don’t need to be in 4-H to participate.

The fee is $5 per person. Register online by April 18. For more information or to request a disability accommodation, contact Jessica Brainerd at 581.3877, 800.287.0274 (toll free in Maine) or jessica.brainerd@maine.edu.
