Sixth Grade Students played with state-of-the-art military robots, explored wind technology, danced to music of the past several decades, and discovered static electricity at 4-H Days: Back to the Future, held this week on Fort Leonard Wood.
4-H Days: Back to the future gave students the opportunity to explore science and technology through several work stations including Video Game technology, Mad Science - All About Polymers, Wind Works, Robotics, American Bandstand to Now - Dance to be Fit, Worm Holes in Space Challenge, and Shock Wave Static Electricity.
4-H Days is a collaborative program with 4-H, Fort Leonard Wood, Pulaski County Missouri Extension, the Waynesville School District, and Child Youth and School Services.
“This introduces the sixth graders to the Pippin Youth Center and the 4-H Program. And gives the staff an opportunity to share their talents with other students in the community,” Waita Karcher, 4-H Program Assistant, said.
Throughout the day, volunteer soldiers from the 14th Military Police Brigade worked with the students.
