With the school year already underway, so is the DeWitt County 4-H Robotics Club.
Sherry Fulton from the University of Illinois Extension reminds those that are interested in robotics to check out the club Thursday night at the Extension office.
Fulton says that the club will meet once a month and because it is a club potential members will need to sign up to participate. Sign up can take place anytime, but since the club is in its early stages now is the perfect time to sign up.
Fulton contends that the club is a result of an increase in education of STEM, which stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The career opportunities for STEM is endless and will be increasing in years to come.
The next meeting for the DeWitt County 4-H Robotics Club is Thursday, November 10. Those interested need to call the extension office to sign up at (217) 935-5764. There is an annual 4-H program fee to participate, with financial aid available to those in need.
