4-H Electric Camp: 4-H STEM at Its Best!

Jun 23, 2017


Dr. Richard Clark

4-H Electric Camp is a fun-filled, rewarding STEM adventure in electric power held at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Next week, campers will learn what electricity is and how it functions by working with electrical specialists from across the state in hands-on learning centers. Youth will also have the chance to meet other 4-H’ers from across Tennessee while they explore careers in energy, electricity and basic sciences.

What makes 4-H Electric Camp possible is a unique partnership established between UT Extension, the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association and its statewide member cooperatives. These are made up of the Tennessee Municipal Electric Power Association and its municipal power system members from across the state; TVA, US Cellular, and other industry donors.

4‑H STEM programs, such as Electric Camp, are proven to get kids excited about science by offering fun, hands-on activities which builds confidence and fosters interest in STEM-related careers.
