On October 20th from 5-9 p.m., Miranda 4-H’s Lego Engineering Project held an activity at College of the Redwoods’ Science Night. The workshop was organized by the leaders of STEM, Shanna Archibold and Jonathan Archibold, who taught and directed it along with Malachi Church.

The kids who came used civil engineering and Lego pieces to create their own structures. In the end, all the projects were brought together to create a Lego city.

The goal of the project was a community outreach system to show that 4-H is about more than just showing animals. It was a great success and had estimated 250 kids attend the workshop. Here is a video about the project that was originally posted on the Humboldt County 4-H, California Facebook page.
