Mt. Vernon Power On Tackles 4-H NYSD Experiment Maps & Apps!


2013 4-H National Youth Science Day is right around the corner! This year Alexandria 4-H and the National 4-H Council partnered to kick things off with a bang. 4th and 5th graders from Mt. Vernon Recreation Center Power On! program were among the first in the county to try out the new experiment, Maps & Apps! This year’s experiment gives 4-Her’s the opportunity to think like a geospatial scientist using the geographic inquiry process and create their ideal park. National Youth Science Day is an annual event designed to promote 4-H’s effort to encourage youth participate in science based education and pursue scientific careers. 2013 National Youth Science Day officially takes place on Wednesday October 9. If you’re interested in learning more about this year’s experiment or would like to take a crack at it yourself, join Alexandria & Arlington 4-H on Monday October 14, from 10:00 am – Noon at Four Mile Run Park in Alexandria VA.

    Awesome work Reggie !!!!
    Saw some GIS related curricula for 4-H and have been looking to put it to work out here in “the country” (Southampton County)
    Definitely a employment-based skillset !
