Henrico 4-H to offer Explorers of the Deep workshop for youth May 6 and 20

Henrico 4-H Youth Development will offer a half-day STEM Challenge workshop on Saturdays, May 6 and 20 to give youth an opportunity to have fun while learning about exploring the oceans with robots.

The Explorers of the Deep workshop is designed by Rutgers University for youth ages 9 to 13 as of Sept. 30. Each session will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at Children of God Victory Tabernacle, 1146 Wilkinson Road, and include three activities to strengthen observational and critical thinking skills while exploring how the ocean and humans are interconnected. The cost to participate is $20, with online registration due by Wednesday, April 26.

Participants will use foundational skills in the STEM areas of study – science, technology, engineering and mathematics – while they consider such issues as changing oceanic conditions and their impacts on the environment and humans.
