November 18, 2022
The STEAM Festival is a annual virtual fair of sorts for all MA 4-H members.  It is not only about Science, Engineering and Technology, but also incorporates Animals, the Arts, Crafts and more!  Keep making and working on projects and get your entries ready to enter in February and hold the date of March 14 (Pi Day) for awards.
Here are two of the NEW additions added to the 2022 STEAM Festival (NEW additions for 2023 coming soon.)
 
The Animal Science Model class replaced the Hero Model Class. Youth were asked to design a model of a barn, paddock or event using the Schleich, Breyer or other small animals in your collection. For example, the model could be a versatility course, obstacle for horses, a dog agility course, a chicken coop, or dream barn. What else can you create?
 
The Shoebox parade had youth use a shoebox or other small box celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Arbor Day with the theme “Celebrating Trees”. Do you BeLeaf it?  Watch for the 2023 theme to be announced in December.
