Daily Bulldog highlights 4-H Summer of Science program

The Daily Bulldog wrote about a 4-H Summer of Science activity — building catapults to launch pom poms across a carpeted floor — led by Tara Marble at the Farmington Public Library. Marble is youth coordinator for Franklin County’s 4-H program, which is part of University of Maine Cooperative Extension. Each week, participants explore a different “pirate problem.” The program serves about 110 area youth. “It’s all about experiential learning,” says Marble. “It gives a better outcome of skill sets and teaches that you can’t succeed without some failure.”
