Power up the Neighborhood January 2022 

The 4-H Electric Program is an informal hands-on youth program conducted by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service, professional 4-H agents, and adult volunteer leaders. They develop and deliver activities that provide youth with opportunities to learn about the fundamentals of electricity, renewable energy technologies, and energy conservation. Participants also develop an awareness for how energy is generated, distributed, used, and financed. A key focus of the 4-H Electric Program is the development of life skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, public speaking, and teamwork.

Currituck County 4-H is hosting a workshop on January 5th, 2022 starting at  9:00 to 11:30 am for youth ages 11 to 18.  This series of energy science and engineering design activities and experiments provides youth with exciting opportunities to explore electrical circuits, power systems, sensors, coding and alternative energy. These activities invite youth  to create and explore many different science and engineering concepts while designing and building their own “powered neighborhood”.  Youth will  use  problem solving, and troubleshooting skills as they tackle each situation,including creating and resolving a complete power outage in their neighborhood.  This workshop series will continue each month throughout the school year so check our web page for additional scheduled workshops. 

Youth will also learn about NC 4-H Electric Congress and how to earn the opportunity to attend this exciting, all expenses paid event. To register for this fun and interactive workshop please visit
