Enrichment Programming

Yankton County 4-H has adapted to include traditional 4-H programming through clubs and contest and non-traditional 4-H programming through special enrichment activities. This page includes some of our most popular Enrichment programming.

Gayville Enrichment – Yankton County 4-H joins the Gayville School District during their Enrichment Mondays with fun educational activities.

Library Science Club – the 3rd Thursday of every month from 3:45 to 4:45 p.m. from September through April

STEAM Clothing - Are you interested in learning more about Fashion Design or Sewing? STEAM Clothing is a SPIN club, or a short term special interest club where five or more young people learn about the topic of interest, in this case textiles and fashion. We are meeting the third Thursday of the month from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Yankton County Extension Office. We combine science, technology, engineering, art and math with textiles and fashion!

Robotics - Participants use LEGO Mindstorms EV3 kits to build structurally sound Lego Robots as well as how to program these robots using a computer/iPad.  Youth start by building a robot using the provided instructions, then can move into creating their own.  Students will explore team-work, collaboration, and leadership while learning to appreciate science and technology. This program is currently utilized after school at the Yankton Elementary Schools and during Monday Enrichment with the Gayville School District.

Junk Drawer Engineering – Challenges participants to build robots from everyday items. In each module youth will learn about a different aspect of engineering. This 3-level curriculum emphasizes developing knowledge and developing skills, as well as applying what they have learned as participating youth design and build their own projects. Youth will use their Notebook to record their learning experiences, designs and data from their investigations. This program is currently utilized after school at the Yankton Elementary Schools and during Monday Enrichment with the Gayville School District.

Additional Programming - Programming opportunities are almost indefinite with 4-H. We strive to help fill our community’s needs. In doing so, we are constantly changing and adapting. We’ve created a special Enrichment Guide for teachers and others to utilize if they are looking for help from 4-H with programming.
