Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts:  mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity.  This project fosters mastery by allowing youth to learn about circuits, magnetism, motors and more while applying hands on skills such as wiring, soldering and reading and following diagrams for circuits; Belonging by encouraging youth to work with a group with similar interests and an experienced and caring adult to learn about opportunities and careers related to electronics and electricity;  Independence by practicing the skills learned to solve real world problems such as repairing broken and unusable electrical and electronic equipment and; Generosity by using the skills they have developed to give back to their family and/or community in providing a skilled service to help those in need.  Contact your county extension office for more information (link).
