Panhandle Research and Extension Center, Scottsbluff
Student interns who worked in Nebraska Extension offices throughout the state this summer have gotten a taste of careers in Extension by putting on experiential learning programs for local 4-H programs – planning and leading activities in which kids have fun while learning science, math, nutrition and healthy living.
Scotts Bluff, Morrill, Garden and Cheyenne counties in the Panhandle are four of the numerous offices in the state where interns are working. The interns help teach 4-H classes and organize county fairs, in addition to many other activities that are part of everyday business at a county-based extension office.
