Pen Bay Pilot posts piece about 4-H Centers providing outdoor, STEM education

Penobscot Bay Pilot shared a University of Maine Cooperative Extension story about UMaine 4-H partnering with schools for outdoor, STEM education. University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Learning Centers — including Blueberry Cove 4-H Camp and Learning Center in Tenants Harbor, Tanglewood 4-H Camp and Learning Center in Lincolnville, and the 4-H Camp and Learning Center at Bryant Pond — will provide venues for vibrant outdoor learning, and experiential STEM and outdoor education lessons that add depth to standard grade-level curriculum. “Outdoor learning centers are playing a significant role in the reopening of schools across the country,” said Ryder Scott, state director of UMaine Extension 4-H Camps and Learning Centers. “With strong community relationships, program-ready facilities and talented education staff, the UMaine 4-H Centers are rapidly becoming leaders in partnerships between outdoor learning centers and public school districts in Maine.”
