Rockingham County 4-H STEM: Chain Reaction Machine Challenge


Rockingham County 4-H Office
113A North Road
Brentwood, NH 03833
United States

Join us for fun-filled 4-H STEM evening building and running chain reaction machines!

This event was previously scheduled for Friday, January 21 and has been rescheduled for Friday, March 4.

Design and build a unique invention that completes a chain reaction of events. Small groups will be tasked with designing and constructing a machine that transfers energy from one object to another, step by step, until the objective is completed. We will tinker with the laws of physics to master several different objectives. This event will harness creativity, design, and mechanical awareness.

Pizza dinner provided!

Registration is required! Register for this event via 4-H Online by Friday, February 18, 2022. Please choose ONE of the two sessions when you register.

This event is part of a series of Rockingham County 4-H Winter STEM events, including Mousetrap Cars and Stomp Rockets. 4‑H STEM programs provide 4‑H youth the opportunity to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Whether that’s exploring circuits, coding a new app, or designing an underwater drone, 4-H STEM helps youth foster their curiosity and sparks innovation. This series of winter 4-H STEM events will be a great creative, constructive, and social outlet for the youth in your family. Each event will be held at the Brentwood Extension office and serve pizza.

These STEM activities are relevant and can be deliverable for any age group. However, these 4-H events will be designed to target the 8 and older age range. Children as young as 5 are welcome; however, we ask that you work directly with your “Cloverbuds” for the entirety of the event. Thank you!
