The OSU Extension Service in Tillamook will offer a 4-H OMSI Science Day. This day will take place October 13th, which is a state in-service day for Public Schools. Participants can be dropped off at 8 am and picked up at 12:30 pm. Come enjoy hands on STEM activities with OMSI and Tillamook County 4-H. Sessions will include: Jolts, Volts and Wires; Imagineering: Rollercoaster Madness; and Identity.
Jolts, Volts and Wires will include electrifying activities to get you charged! Study the nature of electricity by engineering circuits using generators, batteries, bulbs, motors and more. Topics include generation and transmission of electricity, safety, conductivity and circuits.
In Imagineering: Rollercoaster Madness you will go on a wild ride with this workshop that lets them design and test their own marble coaster, complete with loops and jumps.
In Identity learn what makes you, you. Use hands-on science to extract DNA and real forensic techniques to examine their own unique fingerprints. Topics include forensic science, evidence analysis and analytical thinking.
