From page A6 | February 14, 2014 |

On Feb. 22 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. El Dorado County 4-H will be offering County Presentation Day and National Youth in Science Experiment at Folsom Lake College El Dorado Center in Placerville.

Presentation Day is an exciting day when youth share what they know with other 4-H’ers. Through presentations youth learn the skill of public speaking, gain confidence and have the opportunity to teach others. Youth have the option of various presentation forms:

• An educational display is an organized visual presentation, often on a tri-fold poster board panel. They explain what’s on their posters to a judge.
• A demonstration teaches a skill by showing how to do it.
• A prepared speech is when they write and give a speech to persuade, inform or educate the audience on one topic.
• An impromptu speech is one they write at the competition on the topic given by the judges.
• An interpretive reading is when they read from a book, making the story come alive with their voices.
• Share the fun is a group skit or a group presentation.

For the first time, El Dorado County 4-H is pairing Presentation Day with SET (Science, Engineering & Technology) activities by participating in 4-H National Science Experiment: 4-H Maps & Apps.

Designed by Colorado State University Extension, 4-H Maps & Apps will introduce youth to the importance of geographic information systems (GIS) and global positioning systems (GPS) as they use an important GIS technique called “layering” to map and design their ideal park.

The growing fields associated with GIS and GPS are driving demand for critical thinkers who can harness geospatial technology to examine how all things around us relate. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, GIS and GPS are ranked among the fastest growing occupational fields in the nation.

4-H National Youth Science Day is the premier national rallying event for year-round 4-H science programming that reaches millions of young people each year. The event brings together youth to complete a single, innovative science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) related activity in an effort to expose young people to exciting new science topics and ultimately drive STEM workforce development.

This event will be free and open to the public as well as 4-H members. To reserve space or for more information, call the 4-H office at 530-621-5503.
