Partnership between Washington County Extension and Keota Elementary PTO is excited to announce a new After School STEM Club is now taking registrations for the November club. This opportunity is open to any 4th-6th grade Keota Elementary student who wants to experiment more with science, technology, engineering, and math. Each session will use an Engineering is Elementary and State 4-H curriculum. Washington County Extension & 4-H and Ketoa Elementary PTO are partnering together to offer additional and fun ways for Keota youth to interact with science more in a hands-on setting while making new friends and connecting with caring adults in the community.  Click here for registration form.
The November session will meet Nov 6, 13, 20 , and 27 afterschool until 5 p.m. in the Keota Elementary Library. The unit is called “Put a Lid on It: Designing Helmets”. Students will investigate how helmets protect the brain, parts of the brain, and how technology plays a factor in making more efficient helmets. They will diagram the brain, and use biomechanical engineering to design and build their own model helmet for a crash-test dummy helmet challenge. November STEM Club will be taught by Angela Conrad, Tanner Wenger with youth mentors Frankie Johnson and Bailey Sieren.
Registrations accepted on a first come, first serve basis until October 30 at the Keota Elementary Office with limited space available. There is a $10 fee due with the registration form made to Keota Elementary PTO.
Forms will be sent home with Keota 4th-6th grade students the week of October 8 and are also available on the Extension website. 
Please contact the Washington County Extension Office, 319-653-4811 or, with any questions about this STEM Club or how to get involved with other youth science activities.
