There are still a few openings available for a student-led STEM after-school program in the Blue Ridge district.
Lindsey Burden is the Extension Program Coordinator at the DeWitt County Extension office and indicates the highlight of their five-week program is crime science.
Blue Ridge High School students are coming up with the topics to lead the youth. Burden says it gives them the chance to choose the best, most relatable topics.
The K-2nd-grade session is full but Burden says they are taking a waiting list for that. The 3rd-5th-grade session has availabilities, though they will be taking a waiting list for that once it is full. To get registered or get on the waiting list for either session, contact Burden at the U of I Extension office by calling 217-935-5764. Those sessions start Wednesday.
