Rockingham County 4-H STEM Gizmo Expo
Our Winter Makers Mates session will be "heating up" after the new year. Something to keep all you makers and engineers busy until then are these remarkable STEM kits from Shop 4-H. They are all $10 or less, and the outcomes are simple to achieve and expand upon to make more challenging:
- Build-a-Boat Activity: Design a working electric motor boat
- Mini Wind Turbine Activity: Design a turbine to harness the power of the wind and convert it into electricity
- 4-H Super Wiggle-bot: Build a motorized contraption that can be designed to do many cool things
- Hydraulic Claw Activity: Build a hydraulic claw that works just like the games in an arcade
- or create your own gizmo!
If you purchase a kit, register via 4HOnline for the event “Rockingham County 4-H STEM Expo Challenge Kits” to log your participation!
We will hold an optional virtual classroom session and "Gizmo Expo" on Wednesday, December 2 from 4-5pm with Mike Harris and 4-H STEM Field Specialist Claes Thelemarck to showcase achievements and reflect on the process. Come show us your engineering achievements if you grabbed a STEM Kit from the 4-H Mall or you have have created your own simple mechanics gizmo!
