Defined STEM, one of the Iowa Governor’s STEM Hub Grant programs, allows you to combine online learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics with 4-H project learning. The three Defined STEM categories highlighted at this year’s fair are: Wind Energy Business, Engineering Space Robots, and Restaurant Owner – The Clover Bistro.
The 4-H camp, sports camp and music camp brochures are arriving and the kids are begging for a summer adventure. But other than fun, is there any value to camp? During May, family life specialists examine the research and discuss how to help children choose an appropriate camp in the Science of Parenting blog from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.
