Do you like to discover new things? Build things with your hands? Like science and the really cool experiments? The Bandera County 4-H program invites parents and kids who are currently enrolled in third grade through twelfth grade to attend the launching of the Science, Engineering, Technology (SET) project, Tuesday, May 22, at the Mansfield Park Showbarn, 2886 Hwy 16 North, in Bandera.

The meeting will start at 7 pm. Parent and/or guardian must attend with their child.

Texas 4-H has started the 4-H Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) project with the national initiative to bring science back into 4-H.

With the motto "One Million New Scientists, One Million New Ideas," 4-H will address the nation's critical challenge by preparing young people to excel in science, engineering, and technology in 2012.

Currently, the 4-H science, engineering, and technology programs reach more than 5 million youth with hands-on learning experiences to encourage young minds and fill the pipeline of young leaders proficient in science.

"So be sure to join us on May 22 as you meet new friends, learn some really cool things about science, and maybe even learn how robots work," said Jana Osbourn, County Extension Agent.
