PASCO, WA- Nearly 100 3rd through 12th-graders signed up to spend their Saturday at Columbia Basin College launching rockets, building robots, and taking a part computers to learn more about science and engineering.

Local 4-H leaders wanted to push STEM, the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics program, during National 4-H Week.

“It's fun for the kids because there is no test.  There is no standard.  There are no high stakes.  It's them exploring and getting to know more about whatever project area it is that they're learning about and getting to have fun and enjoy it rather than feeling the pressure of school,” said Natalie Kinion with Benton-Franklin 4-H.

This was the first year that Benton-Franklin 4-H has done this activity and they expect to do it again next year.
