WEST CHESTER, Pa. — “Our nation has fallen behind other countries in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math,” said Donald T. Floyd, Jr., former president and CEO of National 4-H Council. “However, we believe that the solution to this problem lies in engaging youth early and often in exciting, hands-on exploration of timely scientific subjects to demonstrate that STEM isn’t scary or intimidating, it’s approachable and interesting.”
The Chester County 4-H program is looking for several volunteers to help us engage youth in STEM education with an emphasis on robotics and computer sciences. Volunteers would work directly with youth on short term projects or in on-going 4-H clubs. Volunteer training is provided.
Chester County 4-H has established robotics clubs across the County that provide fun, hands-on learning opportunities for youth 8-18. To find out more about the opportunities available please contact Toni Stuetz, Extension 4-H Educator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-696-3500.
