University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H is inviting teachers and volunteers from around the state to participate in the 11th annual 4-H National Youth Science Day challenge by hosting the experiment in their school, after-school program, library or 4-H club throughout the month of October.

This year’s challenge, “Code Your World,” is a four-part activity developed by Google and West Virginia University Extension Service to get youth, particularly novices, involved in computer science through hands-on activities focused on topics such as digital animation, gaming and dance.
