Build paper structures and solar cars at STEM Spectacular April 26

Explore physics and engineering via a selection of exciting, arms-on functions at the initially 4-H STEM Stunning, hosted by College of Illinois Extension of DuPage, Kane, and Kendall counties.

On Tuesday, April 26, youth, ages 8 to 18, will style, develop, and test solar automobiles, paper roller coasters, and paper bridges at the Kane County Fairgrounds in St. Charles.

“Youth will participate in groups of two to total these interesting, interactive STEM problems,” mentioned 4-H Educator Donna Nuger. “Participate with a sibling, meet up with up with a buddy, or we can enable you fulfill a spouse at the function. There is certainly no will need to be a 4-H member to take part.”
