Small Engines I & II
Get your gears going with hands on learning. You'll explore how an engine works, the parts of an engine, cleaning, maintenance and trouble shooting. If you are interested in mechanics, agriculture, ATVs and other sport machines, this is for you!
Lego Engineering *Pilot Year*
Let's Play! The LEGO project is a great way to grow problem-solving skills, fine motor development and will develop imagination and creativity. Learn to make 3-dimensional objects and gain hands-on experience with geometry, mathematics and engineering concepts! By combining science and fun, the LEGO project is a great example of the 4-H motto: “Learn to Do by Doing”.
Learn all about woodworking in three different units. Starting off at the basics, you'll learn how to use hand tools, and sand to a smooth finish. By the end of the third unit you'll be using power tools and making wood joints. You will have the chance to build useful items such as your very own gum ball machine, a shelf for your room and a foot stool for home!
Working with fire and metal is a timeless tradition that goes back to the early days when man first started making tools from iron during the iron age. Learn basic terminology, about the necessary tools, how to build a forge, and create some unique pieces. There are four divisions, based on skill level, in this project; the project leader has discretion to assign division to each member.
Disclaimer: Project members must be Intermediate or Senior 4-H members, minimum age being 12 years.
Entomology *Pilot Year*
Welcome to the world of bugs! Entomology, also known as the study of Insects, is a branch of science that has proved to be instrumental in understanding the natural world happening around us. This project aims to teach members how to properly catch, study and identify some of the smallest animals in our ecosystems so that they too can gain respect and understanding of these little critters!
Sustainable Living *Pilot Year*
The Sustainable Living Project will guide members through the language and concepts that are useful to understanding “green” solutions to everyday life. This project includes activities and learning techniques that will allow members to get hands on experience making sustainable choices that will benefit the environment and themselves.
