National Youth Science Day
Eco Bot Challenge
Register your event and order your kits online at:http://www.4-h.org/4-h-national-youth-science-day/.
National 4-H Council has developed some great online tools that include a planning guide, sample press releases and newspaper ads, a media guide, and customizable marketing materials (flayer, bookmark, and banner). With permission from your County Extension Director, you can use county EDIS dollars to have some of these materials printed but you will need to work through ICS.
National 4-H Council will be developing a step by step video about how to do the experiment, but currently there is a nice video on You Tube that demonstrates how to build your own Eco Bot.
Overview and Tips (Power Point Presentation)
Instructions for making a large demonstration version of your Eco Bot using a scrub brush instead of a toothbrush
