County 4-H Offers Virtual Summer Projects for Youth

Lackawanna County 4-H is offering a variety of summer programming projects in a virtual format for the summer of 2020.  

“Our programming that traditionally takes place in a person to person format, cannot be done this summer.  Re-thinking the way we can offer our programs has had a beneficial effect.  By offering virtual and/or pre-recorded lessons, we are able to offer Lackawanna County youth more variety in their project choices,” noted Sandi Graham of the Extension staff.     

Lackawanna County youth ages 8 to 18 can “pick their projects”.  Youth can choose areas of interest or areas of learning they would like to explore.  Virtual learning activities will have a flexible schedule so that youth and families can enjoy traditional summer activities and also be involved in 4-H programs.

The projects offered this summer are: Coding, Kitchen Chemistry, Beginning Engineering, Electricity, Interior Design, Photography, Weaving, Canvas Designs, Basic Cross Stitch, Tie Pillow, Sew Electric Bookmark, Pillowcase Making, and Reading Pillow Construction. 

Registration for these projects can be obtained from Sandi Graham, 4-H Educator, as or by calling the Penn State Extension Office at 570-963-6842.
