RBC I Rio Blanco County 4-H participated in the 4-H National Youth Science Day Experiment, “The Power of Wind.” We had two after-school programs at the extension offices in Meeker and Rangely with 4-H members and then school enrichment programs in Meeker with Kay Bivens’ first, second, third, fourth and fifth graders where we learned about harnessing wind power for electricity and designing blades for our mini wind turbines!
