Drone Discovery challenges young Nevadans
CARSON CITY, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) —
Young Nevadans are joining more than 100,000 other children across the nation this week for the 9th annual 4-H National Youth Science Day challenge.
This year's challenge is called Drone Discovery. It introduces kids to drone technology in a hands-on, interactive design challenge.
On Saturday, children participated in the challenge in Carson City. They built airplanes out of foam, attached a keychain camera to it, collected data, and then downloaded and analyzed the data.
"This challenge is an opportunity to show our communities the types of learn-by-doing activities that our 4-H programs provide for youth," said Carrie Stark, Nevada 4-H program director with University of Nevada Cooperative Extension. "There are so many different 4-H programs, including 4-H Clubs and activities that are tailored to youth's various interests, and now is a great time to get involved."
