Lake Land College, U of I Extension Center partner to host 2013 4-H National Youth Science Day

 Lake Land College, in coordination with the University of Illinois Extension, Unit 19, will host activities for the 2013 4-H National Youth Science Day on Oct. 2 from 9 – 11 a.m. at Lake Land College. 

“This nation-wide event, designed to engage hundreds of thousands of American youth in a single science experiment, seeks to spark an interest and leadership in science, technology, engineering and math careers in an effort to keep America competitive in those fields,” said Dana Homann, University of Illinois Extension youth educator.

This year’s experiment “Maps and Apps” will turn participants into geospatial thinkers as they design and map their ideal park, using GIS mapping to solve community problems and contribute data about their community to the U.S. Geological Survey. Participants from Arcola and Shelbyville Elementary Schools will visit Lake Land to perform the experiment. Those students will then lead the experiment in their respective schools with the rest of their classmates, on Oct. 9. 

Instruction will be led by Galen Altman, Lake Land College civil engineering technology instructor and Brooke Ferguson, Lake Land College adjunct geographic information systems and geography instructor. 

4-H seeks to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, forming attitudes and developing life skills that enable them to become caring, competent and contributing members of society.  For more information on this experiment or other 4-H programs contact your local University of Illinois Extension office.
