The Washington County OSU Extension Office is now taking reservations for their chickquest program and incubators. Teachers and educators can call the office or email Kathryn at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve an incubator and supplies. Chick Quest, a Classroom Journey through the Life Cycle of Chickens, is a 4-H SET School Enrichment program that challenges students to use Science, Engineering, and Technology to investigate the life cycle of an embryonic chicken egg. From monitoring living eggs to observing fluffy chicks, these lively activities pique curiosity, encourage collaboration, and provide young scientists with unforgettable experiences.
We’re launching a trip to Mars Base Camp and want to help you get there! The 2020 4-H STEM Challenge explores sending a mission to Mars and what it takes to sustain life in space. The Mars Base Camp kit includes activities that use STEM skills like mechanical engineering, physics, computer science, and agriculture.
We want Ohio 4-H families to join in and thanks to the Ohio 4-H Foundation and Google, you can receive an $8 discount on the Mars Base Camp family kit. The family kit is available at shop4-h.org for $15.95, plus shipping, but with the Ohio 4-H discount and the $5 discount available on their website, your final cost is just $7.80 + tax.
