Submitted by Deryl E. Waldren

The Kansas 4-H SpaceTech Action Team, Kansas 4-H Youth Development and KSU Polytechnic in Salina are co-sponsoring a Kansas 4-H SpaceTech training on Saturday, April 27, at the KSU Polytechnic Campus, College Center Conference Center, 2310 Centennial Road, Salina, KS 67401. Participants will get to attend two in-depth entry level workshops repeated in the afternoon: rocketry and unmanned aerial systems (drones). Register by visiting: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe3K0sJZwz0InnDeWRWJApqE-yKu1pQw0Ej0DdJOdCdO7TT9Q/viewform.

4-H members (12-19-years-old), parents, volunteer 4-H leaders, Extension staff, and educators working with youth who are interested in 4-H rocketry and unmanned aerial systems project areas. This training is being held in Salina, but it is open to any Kansas resident on a first-come, first-serve registration basis. Registration is limited to 30 per each session with a minimum of 10 required for each workshop session to be taught. No youths 11 and younger will be accepted to this training. Consider sending a team of youth and adults from your county/district to be trained to take home valuable information. Parents planning on assisting their older children during the training need to register for the training. This training is not designed as a parent-child 4-H project activity, but as a train-the-trainer program.

Registration fees are non-refundable unless KSRE cancels the workshop due to low numbers. Checks should be made payable to the Kansas 4-H Foundation.
