Thanks to The Tamworth Foundation and Carroll County 4-H, we will offer a four-session program for kids ages 8 to 12 that will explore wind and water power, hydraulics, and other mechanical concepts in a fun, hands-on way.
This program will take place on Friday afternoons from 3:30 to 5:00 PM July 2, 9, 16, 23. Led by Ned Beecher and two teen assistants, and supported by UNH Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Science Educator Claes Thelemarck, it will take place outside behind the library following all UNH/4-H protocols. Each of the first three sessions will feature a new build-it project that starts with a kit that young engineers will put together and then improve through tinkering and testing. The fourth session will be a time to combine the three previous weeks’ projects into one fantastic invention.
To register your child, fill out this online form. There is room for 12 participants. Preference will be given to Tamworth children and those who can attend all four sessions. For more information, contact Mary Cronin, 603-323-8510.
