Interested in STEM and innovation? Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Mercer County is pleased to announce the Robbinsville Innovation 4-H Club is hosting a two-day virtual Maker Fair on Saturday and Sunday, August 29-30. All are invited!
There will be several opportunities to get involved and to see the innovative projects created by the 4-H club members over the past year. The youth have invented a variety of products that address several societal challenges related to health and wellness, environmental sustainability, food production, and more. Come see them present their creative high-tech solutions!
As a bonus, there will be 4-H members from innovation clubs in Ashland, Massachusetts and Ashburn, Virginia also participating in the weekend Maker Fair. Over the past few years, the Mercer County Innovation 4-H Club has established these new 4-H clubs in Massachusetts and Virginia as well as a connection with students at Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU) in Hyderabad, India. A group of more experienced 4-H members has been providing regular virtual training in a variety of STEM topics to youth of these other groups – and they will be presenting their projects as well. It will be a great mix of youth inventors at the 4-H Maker Fair!
Anyone interested in attending should contact the club at RobbinsvilleInnovationClub@gmail.com. It should be fun and inspiring! The club will provide details for how you can get involved.
