Virtual 4-H project workshops

    West Virginia 4-H is hosting virtual workshops to help youths and their families learn about fun topics and the 4-H program. We will use Zoom to host these workshops. This week, workshops will focus topics like tree parts, forest products and birds. Participants should be between the ages of 9 - 21 (or will turn 9 by September 30, 2020).

    Workshops for the week of May 4th are:

    • Follow the Forest Path - Tuesday, May 5, 2020 at 2 p.m.
    • Birds - Thursday May 7, 2020 at 2 p.m.

    Join us to learn more about these topics. If you enjoy the workshop, we will share information about how you can continue learning about forestry or birds through an at-home 4-H project on the topic.

West Virginia families encouraged to participate in the National 'Bar of Soap' Video Challenge

Join WVU Extension Service as we encourage West Virginia families to take part in the Rube Goldberg Bar of Soap Video Challenge. Using creativity and innovation, your task is to build a machine that, through a chain of events, will drop a bar of soap in someone’s hands in 10-20 steps.
In addition to participating in the national Rube Goldberg Challenge, we want West Virginia families to shine during this fun competition! WVU Extension Service and Mylan STEMCARE will be awarding some fun prizes to a few winners.
Grab that bar of soap, review the official Rube Goldberg competition rules/guidelines and start planning your winning machine. On Monday, May 4, visit Mylan STEMCARE to find out how West Virginia families can participate in the WVU Extension Service/Mylan STEMCARE competition.
Let’s Go!
