Grant County 4-H Partners with Thorson Memorial Library Kids Club

Grant County 4-H is making progress with expanding programming to the Grant County youth.
In the coming months, Grant County 4-H and Thorson Memorial Library will partner together to offer a STEM focused Kids Club Program, one Thursday a month. This program will be open to all youth in the Grant County.


The focus of this program is to expose youth to the wonders of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics by using hands-on learning experiences and helping them make the connection to their everyday lives. Through this learn-by-doing process, youth will learn essential life skills such as communication, team work, problem solving, decision making and coping.


This is a great program to get involved with if you are thinking about the options that 4-H has for Grant County youth.


The dates and tentative activities for the 4-H and Thorson Memorial Library Program are:
Thursday, February 9, 2017 at 6:30 PM – Straw Rockets
Thursday, March 9, 2017 at 6:30 PM – Bridge Building
Thursday, April 13, 2017 at 6:30 PM – Straw Rockets
Thursday, May 4, 2017 at 6:30 PM- Weird and Wacky Contraptions


This project was supported, in part, through student assistance provided by the University of Minnesota, Morris Center for Small Towns with funding from the Southwest Regional Sustainable Development Partnership.
