Rocketry Workshop


On June 2nd 4-H youth gathered together for the brand new Rocketry Workshop to teach youth about STEM while having fun building and launching their very own rockets! Participants also built a hovercraft out of recycled products and taste tested astronaut pudding, freeze dried ice cream, and the drink Tang.

Mt View 4-H Butterfly Club


With the help of a grant from MERCK, Rockingham 4-H and Mt View Elementary partnered to offer 5th grade students a weekly after-school 4-H club with a focus on butterflies and STEM. Members learned valuable leadership and public speaking skills through their 4-H meeting and project presentations. Projects included butterfly models made from recycled materials, landscape design, coding and creating their own butterfly video game through the Scratch program, and planting a butterfly garden at the school. At the end of the school year the club was invited to attend the Rockingham County School Board meeting to present their club projects and practice their public speaking by each club member individually speaking to board members.
