Ohio 4-H Cloverbot Challenge

This year we’re going to space and the challenge happens on Mars! Cloverbuds will design a place to live on the Red Planet and create a model featuring their method of transportation. The 4-H Cloverbot Challenge will be virtual via Zoom on Monday, July 12 or Thursday, July 22 from 6:30-8 p.m. All teams must register by June 30 and new teams can order a kit to help them get started at a reduced rate thanks to support from the Ohio 4-H Foundation.

I am looking forward to seeing many Greene County Cloverbuds!

Update: Flexibility is the Key this Year

As with 2020, 2021 seems to be a year that flexibility is needed.  We announced several weeks ago about pre-fair judging dates.  Late last week, the Ohio State Fair made an announcement that their event will be starting earlier in July and closed to the public.  For more information on Ohio State Fair, please click here.

As a result, we need additional time to get non-livestock delegates registered and enrolled in their respective project areas based on judges decisions on judging day.  We will be moving pre-fair judging day to Wednesday, June 30, and Thursday, July 1.  We are in the process of working on the exact schedule for projects each day.  All youth will need to register and sign up for their time slot(s).  More information will be coming soon.  We will be able to offer a zoom interview for those who are not able to attend in person that day.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding as we move through this year.

Beyond the Classroom- Virtual Summer Camp Opportunity

The Ohio State University Department of Mathematics offers a week-long virtual summer camp for middle and high school students.

Beyond the Classroom, invites virtual campers to explore mathematics through engaging activities in a nontraditional environment. Virtual campers will be able to build confidence in their math and programming abilities and develop a deeper understanding of a variety of topics, including mathematical and algorithmic reasoning and problem solving skills. Campers are challenged with activities designed to demonstrate the importance of math and programming skills in the current age of technology and advancement. Emphasis is placed on learning skills and ideas that, in practice, allow for discovery.

In 2021, the topic of the camp is Math Magic!

High school – July 7 to 11
Middle school – July 21 to 25
Cost: $22 (financial aid available)

Experience 4-H at Home Kit #2

Thanks to a grant from the Ohio 4-H Foundation, we are able to offer “Experience 4-H at Home” kits.  Throughout 2021, we will offer 4 different kits, based on each of the H’s in 4-H.  The next kit will be all about the 2nd H, HEART.

The kits are geared toward Cloverbud age.  

The kits will include the activities to complete and the majority of the supplies needed.

Space is limited.  

I will send an email confirmation once we reach our capacity.  When kits are ready for pickup, I ask that they are picked up within 2 weeks.  Otherwise, we will open to the waitlist.

Thank you!
