Passaic County Teen Presentation
The teens from Passaic County 4-H presented a summary of their 4-H science activities from the past year. They have been very active as 4-H Science Ambassadors in their community since the first summer science program two years ago. They gave us ideas for what we can do as science ambassadors and challenged us to make the most of our 4-H experiences.
Prior to the luncheon, we presented our science posters to our families, the participating scientists from the week, and our guests – including administrators, partners, and representatives from Tyco International, the program’s sponsor. We used our posters to help teach them about what we did in each of the areas of science and what we learned from our experiences.
During the closing luncheon we were able to enjoy a great meal with our guests, see a presentation with photos from throughout the week, and receive certificates for completing the program. We also heard from Dr. Larry Katz, the director of Rutgers Cooperative Extension; Paul Fitzhenry from Tyco International; and Samuel Frisby, Mercer County Freeholder. Mr. Frisby’s speech was very motivating, and he challenged us to achieve beyond what we, and others, might initially think is possible. Overall, it was an amazing week!
