The 4-H Electric Program is an informal hands-on youth program conducted by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service, professional 4-H agents, and adult volunteer leaders. They develop and deliver activities that provide youth with opportunities to learn about the fundamentals of electricity, renewable energy technologies, and energy conservation. Participants also develop an awareness for how energy is generated, distributed, used, and financed. A key focus of the 4-H Electric Program is the development of life skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, public speaking, and teamwork.
Currituck County 4-H is hosting a workshop on Friday, October 22, 2021 starting at 2:30 p.m. for youth ages 11 to 18.
This workshop will be focused on alternative energy, with activities centered on wind solar and biofuel sources of energy. Participants will participate in activities and experiments on energy and how it is transformed, and on emerging technologies like wind, solar biomass and hydro. Youth will also learn about NC 4-H Electric Congress and how to earn the opportunity to attend this exciting, all expenses paid event.
