Starting on Monday, June 1, the summer session of live, virtual statewide learning experiences will be offered for Nebraska youth. 

 Several of these experiences include Episodic Educational Programs, which are open to ALL youth across the state (and beyond!). These FREE programs are held regularly (once a week) for 10 weeks of the summer and each session will last 30-45 minutes. All sessions are held via Zoom; the sessions are recorded and placed online following the program. The programs will focus on weekly themes shown below:

Week 1: June 1-4 [Science, Engineering and Technology]

Week 2: June 8-11 [Consumer and Family Sciences]

Week 3: June 15-18 [Animal Science]

May 26th with a visit to Wildcat Hills in Gering, NE. We will learn about the Big Horn Sheep living in the area as we learn how to be a biologist! The content is mostly driven towards 7th-12th graders. If able to join the live session, youth are encouraged to ask Amanda Filipe, Nebraska Game and Parks Outdoor Education Specialist, any questions about the sheep, Wildcat Hills, or what it takes to be a biologist. The session will be recorded and posted at https://4h.unl.edu/virtual-field-trips.  Go to https://go.unl.edu/8hir to register for this amazing tour!
