4-H Clover College, that engaged youth and adults on March 11 at the Mondovi City Building in Mondovi, is a hands-on educational workshop for youth and adults. The concept of 4-H Clover College is to participate in a hands-on an exploratory class for a short while to gain 4-H project skills and be social with others. This year’s sessions were opportunities for 4-H members to try out two new Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Discovery Toolkits, which use inquiry methods to engage young people in hands-on critical thinking and problem solving skill learning challenges and projects. Participants hand-stamped their own metal jewelry and used professional tooling techniques to create their own leathercraft articles. The participants included: Bella Bork, Michelle Moats, Julia Moats, Kayla Keith, Kendall Keith, Alison George and Ava Poeschel.
