Youngsters in kindergarten through third grades interested in activities to begin building life skills like setting goals will have the opportunity to participate in the Greene County 4-H Clover Kids program this spring.
Clover Kids will focus on hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) activities that will allow time for youth to dig deeper into what they are interested in. As youth are involved in STEM, it guides them to answer questions, design tests, create models, build understanding, and share their work with others.
The first sessions begin in February, with plans in place for sessions to be held for both school districts in the county.
The Greene County Clover Kids program will happen every first Wednesday starting February through Ma, with dates of Feb. 4, March 4, April 1 and May 6. All four sessions will be held at the Greene County elementary in Jefferson from 2 to 3:30 pm. Enrollment fee for all four sessions is $10.
Meanwhile, the Paton-Churdan Clover Kids program will be held every third Wednesday of the month, Feb. 18, March 18, April 15 and May 20, at the Churdan Community Center. Each session will begin at 2:30 pm and end at 4 pm. The enrollment fee for participating is $10.
