Stokes County 4-H Nights
Stokes County 4-H Night is a way for youth to learn more about 4-H and to see what all our program offers. Each month, we will have a 4-H night and will discuss one aspect of 4-H. 4-H Nights range from topics such as STEM, agriculture, cooking, and much more.
March 18, 2021- Embryology Night
Join us during this 4-H Night to learn about embryology – the life cycle of a chicken. We are going to discover the different stages of growth of a chicken from inside an egg, using demonstration eggs with photos of development inside (photo below). Youth will learn the importance of incubation, parts of an egg, and parts of a chick. We will be using material provided by the NC State University Poultry Department. Come along as we learn about this fascinating aspect of agriculture.
Register by March 17 to participate at go.ncsu.edu/embryologynight.
February 11, 2021- “Moo”ving Milk from the Farm to the Table Night
Join us during this 4-H Night to learn about how milk goes from the farm to the fridge. While we meet Clover the dairy cow, we will learn about the dairy industry and how dairy foods can contribute to a healthy diet. We will be using the new “Moo”ving Milk from the Farm to the Fridge curriculum that is designed for youth ages 5-7, but for this 4-H Night, we are welcoming youth of all ages to participate to learn more about this topic.
January 14, 2021- Citizenship Night
October 13, 2020 – Fascinating World of Bees Night
Our next 4-H Night will be October 13 at 4 p.m. We will be learning about bees and why they’re important to our environment and agriculture. This event is open to all youth ages 5-18. We will be hearing from a beekeeper, as well as looking into a demonstration beehive to see what all the buzz is about!
September 8, 2020 – STEM Night
Join us on September 8, 2020, from 4–6 p.m. for a 4-H STEM night! Fun, educational activities for youth include making your very own density lava lamp, playdough, and having fun with microbes, just to name a few.
May 26, 2020 – Nutrition in the Kitchen
Do you enjoy cooking, or being in the kitchen? Stokes County 4-H will be hosting “Nutrition in the Kitchen” on May 26 at 3 p.m. virtually, using Zoom, for any youth ages 8-18 (younger youth may need assistance in the kitchen during the class if they wish to make the recipes along with the instructor).
Come learn important things about the kitchen, while learning how to make healthy and yummy snacks! Youth will learn how to properly use utensils, kitchen safety, and the importance of eating healthy snacks. Youth will also learn a little more about 4-H, if they are new to the program. Some healthy snacks we are making are smoothies, yogurt parfaits, and a few raw vegetables with fruit.
As you register for this event, you will receive a list of ingredients to purchase prior to the class (if you wish to participate along), as well as the link to the Zoom meeting, which you will use the night of the class. You can still attend the class without purchasing ingredients. We wanted to give the option to those who would want to make the recipes during the class.
If you are new to 4-H, please be sure to enroll by using 4-H Online.
