Bureau County 4-H’ers experience Google Headquarters

 


 

Every June, Google celebrates GoogleServe—a month-long campaign to empower Googlers to volunteer in their communities. This year, Google chose Illinois 4-H as their GoogleServe Partner, and offered 50 youth the chance to learn from the pros.

Participants were led by a team of Googlers through both online, and offline Computer Science activities at Google Chicago Headquarters on Friday, June 15th.  Activities included CS First’s Create Your Own Google Logo in Scratch, Color Your World using graph theory and computer science, and a presentation on how to stay involved with Google and the opportunities available to IL 4-H youth. 

Of the fifty 4-H participants, Bureau County 4-H members Hugh and Alex Holt of the Fine Arts & Science Team, were able to claim a spot at the event. 

The Mission of University of Illinois Extension is to provide practical education you can trust to help people, businesses and communities solve problems, develop skills and build a better future. Visit our website at http://web.extension.illinois.edu/blmp/
