The Franklin County 4-H STEM Club voted on September 6th to transition from a 4-H project club to a community 4-H club. The 4-H STEM Club will meet once a month on the 3rd Saturday of the month at 1:00 pm at the Franklin County Cooperative Extension Office on 300 Airport Road. The first meeting will be held on Saturday, September 15th. The members will be doing coding projects from Code Club international.

The 4-H STEM Club is open to all interested youth ages 5 – 19. Members will be learning software development and computational thinking skills while building fun computer animations and games. The projects are self-paced and members will do the majority of the work on their own. They will meet once a month to discuss their projects and encourage each other.

Remote meeting options are available via teleconferencing for video-conferencing for members who cannot make a meeting but would like to still participate in the team-building activities. Please call the Franklin County Cooperative Extension Office at 479-667-3720 for more information.
