Students Represent CYAF Extension at Apple Jack Festival
30 Sep 2014
Three students enrolled in the Independent Study in Extension course helped present during the annual Apple Jack Festival in Nebraska City. They helped with two programs: Makey Makey and Commodity Carnival. Makey Makey teaches children science and technology skills through interactive activities. Commodity Carnival, which features the always popular "Risk Ranch" Plinko board, teaches children about agricultural concepts and food literacty through interactive games.
Anh Do, a graduate student with CYAF, said the event gave her an opportunity to see what the Extension program does in the community. "It gave me the chance to see how research are translated into programs and usable knowledge that can be disseminated in the community to individuals of all ages," said Anh.
The Independent Study in Extension course is currently taught by Dr. Maria de Guzman, Associate Professor in the Department of Child, Youth and Family Studies.
CYAF Extension Programs aim to translate and disseminate the results of research into application-based education for Nebraska citizens. More information can be found on the CYAF Extension Programs website.
