UAF Youth Science Day Oct. 7


The University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service invites
youths around Alaska to explore alternative fuels and celebrate 4-H National
Youth Science Day Oct. 7 with a "Biofuel Blast."

Participants in the Biofuel Blast will conduct a national science experiment
developed by the University of Wisconsin Extension and Wisconsin 4-H. The
experiment will teach participants how to convert organic materials to
biofuel, which in turn can be used to supply energy. Many Alaska 4-H
districts have planned their own Biofuel Blast activities that are open to
all youths. Experiment kits are also available to classroom teachers and
others.

Check with your regional 4-H district offices to see what activities are
planned and how you can participate. Visit www.uaf.edu/ces and follow the
links for more information on the Biofuel Blast and how to contact your
regional 4-H office. The Biofuel Blast is part of National 4-H Week,
scheduled for Oct. 4-10.

CONTACT: Marla Lowder, Tanana District 4-H and youth development agent, at
907-474-2427 or via e-mail at fnmkl1@uaf.edu. Debbie Carter, UAF Cooperative
Extension Service public information officer, at 907-474-5406 or
