It’s been a year of trying new things, and we’re still trying new things. We are starting a new series of live events and video installments. This series will focus on many aspects of the 4-H Program from science, to gardening, to nutrition, small animals, and creative arts. We hope you will join us for this events, and follow along with our videos!

In our first live event we learned about the scientific method. The steps are observation, questioning, hypothesis, experimentation, and observation. We watched vinegar and baking soda create a chemical reaction in an empty soda bottle. Then we asked ourselves a question: can we make a plastic sandwich baggy explode with the right combination of baking soda and vinegar?

You can check out the video of our live event, and we encourage you to put your hypothesis in the comments. (How much baking soda, and how much vinegar do you think we need to make a sandwich baggy explode.) We will be testing the first three hypothesis in our comments at our next event.

We’ll be conducting that experiment on March 26, 2021, at 3:30 p.m. on our Pamlico County 4-H Instagram page. While you can watch, I encourage you to gather a few supplies and join us in the activities. To participate in Exploding Baggies Experiment you will need: four thin plastic sandwich’s, a package of baking soda, a bottle of white vinegar, four thin tissues, and something to catch the mess. There will be mess. (Isn’t that the best part?)

Our next live online event will be What’s Up With Mummies on April 9. We will be learning about the different kinds of mummies, ones that occur naturally, and manmade mummies. Which countries and cultures made mummies. That’s not all! We will also be making our own mummies! That’s right, we will be mummifying some apples and hotdogs.

Then we will be getting our hands dirty with some gardening. On April 23 we will be learning about planting seeds, and transplanting seedling. We will also talk about how much space each plant will need, the proper amount of sunlight, and water.
