MT. VERNON – Area 4-H clubs are celebrating National 4-H Week with online festivities this week. Kyle Miles, 4-H Youth Development Educator at University of Illinois Extension, said there’s a common misconception for some when it comes to 4-H.
The extension, serving Bond, Clinton, Jefferson, Marion, and Washington counties, looks to set the stage for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) offerings well into the future. Miles said he considers any opportunity to identify a problem, propose a solution, try it, troubleshoot, make necessary changes, and take action again as a STEM project opportunity.
