Cooperative Extension to Bring Youth Ahead at Full STEAM

PRAIRIE VIEW, TX – Young people, ages 14 to 18, will get a full dose of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Agriculture and Mathematics) at the 2010 4-H Career Awareness and Youth Leadership Laboratory. The Prairie View A&M University Cooperative Extension Program is sponsoring this event, June 15 – 17, on campus.

“We feel that it is very important to  give the youth who attend this year’s event a full learning experience in workshops that give them practical information on how science and technology, especially, affect their everyday lives,” said Gail Long, program specialist – 4-H & Youth and CAYLL chairperson. “The participants will also showcase their leadership skills during Youth Lab.”

Workshops being offered at the 2010 Lab range from learning how robotics can be used daily to making money in your own business ventures. “Youth will spend an adequate amount of time in each workshop so that they can develop a project or participate in a thorough hands-on experience,” Long said.

Topics including CPR, first aid, DNA technology, podcasting, fashion production, citizenship, exploring ecosystems using GPS and GIS technology, natural resources and the environment and the U.S. food supply are being offered.
