For this program we will be traveling to Jennette's Pier where students learn how to harness energy from the wind, advantages and disadvantages of wind energy, the importance of clean wind and ideal locations to install wind turbines to maximize energy output. Through construction of their own “turbine” and discussions about alternative energy, participants in this program gain an understanding of how this technology works and its importance for future energy generation. This program is for youth ages 10-13.

Youth will meet at the NC Cooperative Extension office at 12:00 and travel to Jennette's pier with the 4-H staff. Please make sure your child eats lunch before he or she arrives to the NC Cooperative Extension office.

Once you have completed the Eventbrite registration please visit this link and complete the 4-H online enrollment. This will register your child in 4-H for the year and is required for participation in all 4-H events and activities. You will only need to complete this process once each year.
