On Wednesday, youth in Christian County 4-H will join employees from the Taylorville Wal-Mart to participate in the fourth annual 4-H National Youth Science Day. This annual event seeks to spark an early youth interest in science and to reclaim the nation’s position of leadership in scientific exploration. Jodi Heberling is the Christian County 4-H Program Coordinator who says this year’s theme is Wired for Wind: The 2011 National Science Experiment.

Renewable energy is something that everybody should be concerned with and these demonstrations will show students as well as adults the values of what renewable energy has to offer.
