4-H Science Bonanza
9:00am - 3:00pm
Tired of cartoons on Saturday morning? Make your own goo and find electricity in lemons at the 4-H Science Bonanza! The Science Bonanza is a one day, free event that offers fun science workshops to youth ages 5 – 13 and a 4- H Science Showcase that provides participants an opportunity to learn about science opportunities in 4-H and at the STEM Discovery Lab at UNH Manchester
Attendence is free and will include lunch and three 80-minute workshops in the following topic areas:
- Maker/Engineering – Imagine, Design, Build and Share anything. This track is about creativity and exploring different design and building techniques, materials and mediums. It is about learning new skills and sharing the results of your efforts.
- AgriScience (Plant & Animal Science) – How do plants grow? How do I keep my animals healthy? This track is about the science behind agriculture and includes understanding livestock and pets as well as growing and caring for flowers and vegetables.
- Food & Nutrition – How do we keep our minds and bodies healthy? Can I use science to cook good food? There is so much science behind the food we eat and keeping healthy that it’s hard not to have fun while staying healthy.
- Ecology/Environment – What do fish eat? What kind of critters live in a rotting log? Exploring our natural world is so exciting. Whether observing wildlife or collecting insects in a stream, there is so much to learn about in nature.
