News Release

Tech Wizards

The University of Illinois Extension’s 4-H Tech Wizards is creating the next generation of inventors and out-of-the box thinkers. The grant-funded program is being offered after-school at Henry-Senachwine Grade School to junior high students. The program offers small-group mentoring experiences with a focus on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The mentors are high school students from Henry-Senachwine High School. In addition to building positive relationships with their mentors, participants will learn about a variety of topics including structural engineering (model bridges) aerospace (polyhedral kites and model rockets) ag/crop science (research based gardening project) computer science (robotics and programming), and product design/development (a combination “invention convention” and “shark tank” like project). The year-round program will run through January 31, 2018.


If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate please contact (815)224-0889.  University of Illinois Extension provides equal opportunities in programs and employment.
