The Carbon County 4-H Program is gearing up for another session of the Grab & Go Projects for children during the month of July. 4-H Coordinator, DeLayna Barr took some time to stop by Castle Country Radio to talk about the upcoming projects.
‘We’re doing some Grab & Go Projects, 4-H’s creed is to learn by doing and so we’ve got kits pre-made that you can come pick up on Mondays and you’ll have so many fun things, a lot of them at STEM projects. I’ll tell you a few of them that have come up in July. We’re going to do paracord bracelet, and this is going to be a service, so the kids will make one for themselves but then they will make one for the military,” stated Barr. STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics which is a curriculum that creates critical thinkers. To reserve your Grab & Go Projects, go to ut.4honline.com
