Join us October 10 for 4-H National Youth Science Day

National Science Experiment

Baton Rouge, La - On behalf of the Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center, you are invited to join us on October 10, 2012 for 4‑HHHh  National Youth Science Day, during which we will conduct the National Science Experiment, the 4-H Eco-Bot Challenge. This national event, designed to engage hundreds of thousands of American youth in a single science experiment, will demonstrate that by utilizing engineering principles, youth can have a positive impact on communities and ecosystems.  The “Southern Lab School 6th Grade Bot-Sperts” are ready for the challenge!

The Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center will host the “Southern Lab School 6th Grade Bot-Sperts,” for the 4-H Eco-Bot Challenge on Wednesday October 10, 2012 from 9:00 am-12:00 pm, Room 191, 1st floor, A. O. Williams Hall.

Your attendance in this event will encourage the children in our community to take an interest in science education, and develop a passion for important issues facing our nation today.      

During 4-H National Youth Science Day, youth in 4-H clubs, after-school programs, camps and affiliated organizations across the country will enhance their engineering skills by assembling their own Eco-Bots and surface controls to manage an environmental clean-up. Youth will then test the interaction between the Eco-Bot’s design features and various surface control configurations to determine the most effective clean-up solution for the simulated spill.
