Space Camp a ‘Rocketing’ Success for 4-H’ers

Four youth and one adult from Buffalo County 4-H participated in an educational travel experience to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama from April 20-24, 2017. This trip is an educational opportunity that encourages a lifelong interest in science and math among 4‐H youth who are enrolled in the 4-H Aerospace Project. The Space Camp program promotes teamwork, decision making, problem solving and other attributes that benefit campers long after camp ends. Wisconsin 4‐H awarded nearly 150 students, including the four from Buffalo County, and adult advisors with the opportunity to join over 450 youth from across the country at the event. Workshops focused on current and historical space missions, exploration, technology, rocket construction, simulation of space travel and current career opportunities. Buffalo County 4-H members who participated in the trip were Ashlan Smith, Josh Linse, Julia Moats and Sofia Sandberg. Michelle Moats served as a Health Coordinator for the state delegation. Buffalo County 4-H youth delegates were supported in part financially by the Buffalo County 4-H Leaders’ Association and completed a resume and interview to participate.
