Science Saturdays

4-H Science Saturdays are for youth in K-5th grade.

Workshops run from 9:00 am -11:30 am at the Freshwaters Methodist Church (112 7th Avenue North, Princeton)

Saturday, October 14th:

Slime Making
Come and be ready to get your hands dirty exploring your senses! This fun workshop will explore different kinds of slimes and goops that you can make at home! Many of these recipes use ingredients that you may already have lying around your house! Come learn the different slime recipes and take home some of the fun.

Saturday, November 4th:

Kids love finding out how things work through fun, hands-on projects! STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math - each will be covered at this Science Saturday. Apply the 4-H slogan of "Learn by Doing" and have fun!

Saturday, January 6th:

Air Pressure
Did you know that air has weight? In fact, cooler air is heavier than warm air! At this Science Saturday, we will be learning about that cold air we all feel during wintertime. Perform experiments that prove how cold air and air pressure relate!

Saturday, February 3rd:
Electric & Magnet Fun

Join us for a fun morning of learning and experimenting with magnets and electricity!  Learn about the earth’s pulls and pushes and how magnets work. There will be many hands-on learning opportunities and youth will get to use different types of magnets!

Cost is $5 per youth per workshop.  Download the registration form and return with payment to the Extension / 4-H office by the Monday before the event!
