We’ve Got NXT and EV3s!

Here at UVM Extension we have tons of Lego Mindstorm NXT kits and even a couple of EV3 programmable bricks. Over the next few weeks we’ll be getting to know these units and creating some fun curricula for lucky after school programs. Check out some cool examples of things kids can program with the Lego Mindstorms here.

CatCH After School Test Pilots

On December 12, the first meeting of the St Johnsbury After-School Committee took place during students’ lunch break. The program will hopefully be further funded next year, but this spring semester students will have a chance to shape and participate in some pilot programs facilitated by UVM Extension 4-H.

Students discussed club ideas and time tables. Stay tuned as this program develops!

Welcome!

You’ve stumbled upon the Program Asistant Corner for UVM Extension 4-H in St Johnsbury, VT.

My name is Katie Carroll (UVM class of ’10) and I’m very excited to serve as one of the 2 Americorps 4-H Program Assistants through the Lyndon Economic opportunity AmeriCorps Program (LEAP).

What a mouthful! But it’s very awesome.

LEAP is a national service program that places AmeriCorps members with non-profit organizations throughout the Northeast Kingdom (NEK) of Vermont to support those organizations in expanding their services that many communities rely on. LEAP members deliver direct service to local youth in the form of Pre-K-12 STEM educational programming.

LEAP also supports its members (me) in their path to educational and career attainment through direct service, on-going training’s, and professional development opportunities.

Thanks for taking to time to read this post, and if you’re a resident of the Northeast Kingdom I hope to see you in our NEK of the woods!
