The top 10 films produced by Iowa teens and preteens have been selected for the 2011 Iowa 4-H Film Festival. The films will be shown Friday, Aug. 12, 3:30-5:30 p.m., on the big screen in the 4-H Exhibits Building at the Iowa State Fair.
Iowa youth now can quickly find science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) resources near them. CYSTEM, an online map resource created by Extension Science, Engineering and Technology (E-SET), is designed to link Iowa youth with STEM programs, careers and mentors.
Science, engineering, technology and math (STEM) interests have expanded through 4-H clubs in recent years and Iowa State University Extension Science, Engineering and Technology (E-SET) wants to encourage this growth. This year, 40 4-H programs received mini-grants to use for STEM-focused activities.
