Science Explorers 4-H Club - Ask Anything, Explore Everything!

With the help of a chemistry professor, high school and junior high school youth will find their own science interests and learn through hands-on activities that will make science fun and educational. Participants will develop and create projects that will be suitable for 4-H show projects, science fairs or scholarship opportunities.
Youth, grades 7-12, that are interested in any type of science are invited to join the fun. The Science Explorers 4-H Club will meet every Thursday starting January 18-February 22 from 4-7pm. Classes will be held in room 418, Leighty Tabor Science Center at Millikin University in Decatur. A light meal will be provided for dinner. Projects will be exhibited at a science fair on February 24 from 1-5pm.
