This Friday, local fifth graders will have the opportunity to experiment and experience what STEM has to offer.
Lindsey Burden, DeWitt County 4-H Extension Coordinator, says they are partnering with Farm Bureau to get students at CES excited about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Burden indicates they will have virtual reality, sumo wresting robots, and food science projects.
Burden notes the opportunity to introduce the public to STEM helps to reduce the stigma of 4-H's agricultural background. She hopes some students will be interested in STEM as a result and will want to enroll in 4-H.
The STEM Day will be November 15 for fifth-grade students at Clinton Elementary School.
