The Christian County 4-H Program recently kicked off a new special interest club in Stonington for those 8-12 years old interested in LEGO robotics. The special interest, or SPIN club, is volunteer-led and members don’t have to be enrolled in 4-H to take part.
Rebecca Livingston is the Christian County 4-H Program Coordinator. She says someone came to her with interest in starting this club, and it took off from there.
The club met for the first time on Tuesday and built LEGO traps as well as other fun activities. Livingston says 4-H is trying to break the stigma of only being involved with ag-related activities through new spin clubs.
For more information on the LEGO robotics SPIN club, you can call Livingston at the U of I Christian County Extension Office at 287-7246.
