Alaska 4-H to host National 4-H Week activities
Alaska 4-H will celebrate National 4-H Week Oct. 2-8 with activities open to the public, including science programs and open houses.
Oct. 5 is 4-H National Youth Science Day, and young people in Fairbanks and on all Army and Air Force installations in Alaska will have the opportunity to participate in the “Drone Discovery” science experiment, which is a hands-on engineering design challenge. Participants will learn everything from flight dynamics and aircraft types to safety regulations, remote sensing and flight control.
Several 4-H offices will also host open houses or other special activities, including Fairbanks, Juneau, Sitka, Aleknagik and Dillingham. A list of events is available at www.uaf.edu/ces.
4-H is the nation’s largest youth development program. The University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service administers 4-H in Alaska.
