CES 4-H News

You may have had times in your adult life where you have thought, “I wish I had learned that in school” or “I have no idea how to do that.” When it comes to many adult topics, like how to make a will or how home mortgages work, we often find ourselves learning as we go. A new Kentucky 4-H program seeks to take some of that guesswork out for youth and give them valuable information that they will likely need as adults.

Kentucky 4-H was the recipient of a “Tech Takeover” grant sponsored by National 4-H Council and Hughes Net. In this video campers are learning about parallel circuits, LED lights and conductive thread to make light up bracelets. This activity served as an introduction to adding electronics to fashion design. Youth participated at J.M. Feltner 4-H camp and many other summer camps held across the state. The LED bracelets is one of the Smart Clothing activities found in the Style Engineers Fashion Through Science curriculum.

Now is the time of the year when many of us reflect on all of the things for which we are grateful. In Kentucky 4-H, one of the things we are most grateful for is the volunteer support we have throughout the commonwealth.
Our volunteers are leaders, cheerleaders, mentors and advocates for our youth. It is with their help and service that many young people find their voice or passion and become healthy, capable, caring and productive adults.
