These 4-H members were YETI for Winter & STEAM!

4-H youth were YETI to blow off some winter STEAM

50 young people in the Buffalo County 4-H program used their critical thinking skills while having fun exploring hands-on activities with the cryptid Yeti! Youth received the materials to complete STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) activities at home and connect with other 4-H members and youth leaders virtually live or via recording! Youth created watercolor painted snowflakes, engineered their own igloos, designed snowball launchers, tried origami yetis, and tested their skills in a yeti on the spaghetti challenge. The challenges were designed to engage youth in inquiry-based challenges in geometry and the principles of art. The program was developed by Buffalo County 4-H Youth Development Educator, Annie Lisowski, and included youth from Cochrane-Fountain City 4-H Afterschool, Mondovi Community Youth Center and Buffalo County 4-H community clubs. The 4-H Yeti Winter STEAM counselors were Julia Moats, Sofia Sandberg, Brooke Putz and Rylee Rosenberg.

The Larson family in the Cheerful Workers 4-H club each created their own snowball launchers and tested them out together!
