A summer of STEM with new 4-H club at the Farmer City Library


FARMER CITY — Join DeWitt County 4-H at the Farmer City Public Library leading up to the start of school for a fun, free club exploring science, technology, engineering and math. 

Each week, the club will feature a hands-on STEM activity or challenge such as teaming up to build a rocket and competing to see how far it will fly, planting a hydroponic garden to take home and making music with nothing but a banana and a few electric circuits.

4-H STEM Club will be from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. on Fridays starting June 29 until August 10 at the Farmer City Library, 109 E. Green St., Farmer City. Youth do not need to attend every week. The club will not meet July 13. 

This six-week club is free and open to ages 5 to 10. Please sign up in advance by calling the library at (309) 928-9532. Or, for more information, contact Jenna Ward at jrw[email protected] or (217) 877-6042.
