PRINCETON — The Bureau County 4-H program will offer a model rocketry special interest club for area youth. All youth ages 8-18 as of Sept. 1, from Bureau, LaSalle, Marshall, and Putnam counties are invited to participate.

A 4-H Special Interest Club meets six or more times per year. Adult leaders work with the youth to learn about a specific topic or project that interests them. Youth have opportunities to achieve individual learning goals within the program topic. The model rocketry club will use information from the 4-H aerospace project and other related resources to help youth learn about building and flying model rockets.

The first meeting of the rocketry club will be at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at the Midwest Power Rocket Launch site north of Princeton. Registration is required. To register, or for more information, call the Bureau County Extension office at 815-875-2878.

At the meeting, representatives from the Midwest Power group will discuss their event with the club and share their experiences with model rockets. The club will also discuss future meeting topics and activities. Parent participation is encouraged.

Anyone needing a reasonable accommodation to participate should contact the extension office.
