ROCKLAND — What is 4-H Summer of Science? It is a series of weekly STEM activities for kids in grades 3-7.
This summer kids can act as pirates seeking hidden treasure. The kids will have the opportunity to use the Engineer Design Process and learn about the science of ocean waters to confront real world challenges to navigate their pirate ship.
Lessons are delivered once a week, for five weeks. Kathryn Jenkins of the Knox-Lincoln UMaine Extension 4-H will lead groups of 5-10 kids in these weekly sessions.
All supplies are provided and this program is free.
Ages 7-12 welcome to attend. Children under 10 must be supervised by a parent.
