STATEWIDE — The University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H is hosting its second series of virtual science cafés.
According to Alice Philbrick, a 4-H community education assistant, a variety of topics will be discussed, such as engineering, wildlife, and livestock, archeology, and sharks.
She said these were created to connect students to campus even though they can’t physically be together.
“We do worry a little bit about learning loss, especially right now, and so keeping students engaged with scientific thinking is really helpful with that,” Philbrick said. “Also, keeping kids interested in science and learning is important.”
Philbrick said the programs will be held from 4-4:45 p.m.on Tuesdays beginning this week and running through the end of May. They are open to anyone in grades seven through 12.
