Kids of all ages are invited to join the 4-H Fun Daze Afterschool Program being held three days per week at the Lincoln County Commons in Newport.
With a focus on learning by doing, this free program engages kids in fun activities covering a wide range of topic areas, in particular those encompassed by STEAM — Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.
Participants can test their aeronautics skills with stomp rockets, investigate crystals and cells under a microscope and even solve a mystery using forensic science skills. Plus, kids are encouraged to bring their own ideas for projects and help create activities that address their areas of interest.
The program runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in the 4-H Exhibit Building at the corner of 3rd and Harney, starting immediately after school — 3:15 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays and 2:15 pm on Wednesdays. Transportation is available from local schools via Mid-Columbia Bus.
To find out more or sign up, contact 4-H Program Coordinator Todd Williver at 541-648-6815. Enrollment forms are also available from Heather Tower at the Extension Office, 1211 SE Bay Blvd., Newport.
