AgriLife Extension Science Day Camp for youth set June 5 in San Angelo

SAN ANGELO – The Texas AgriLife Extension Service’s 4-H youth component will conduct the District 7 4-H Science Day Camp from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on June 5 at the Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Center at San Angelo.

The center is located about 5 miles north of town on U.S. Highway 87.

Charla Bading, AgriLife Extension 4-H specialist at San Angelo, said the camp targets currently enrolled 4-H youth and adult leaders, but youth not currently in 4-H are also encouraged to attend.

“The 4-H Science Camps are a huge success across the state,” Bading said. “The focus of the camp for the youth is to help them learn proper scientific procedure in a fun, hands-on environment. There will be no formal adult training scheduled during the day, but there will be plenty of opportunities for them to learn by simply observing the activities.”

The morning’s topics will include: “Scientific Method Exercise – Experiments That Will Blow Your Mind” and “Investigable Question – If You Can Pronounce It, You Can Do It!”

Afternoon session topics following lunch will include: “Experimental Design – Getting an Answer is Not the Hard Part,” “Result Interpretation – Telling the World, Like a Scientist” and “Poster Design – What Goes Where and Why.”

Individual preregistration due by May 30 is $25 for current 4-H members and adult volunteers and $35 for non-4-H members. The fee will cover materials, lunch and snacks and a thumb drive containing all the day’s educational materials.
