Wilmington Brothers Make 4-H Science Presentations At The Big E

Below is information provided by Wilmington’s 4-H Science Pirates:

WILMINGTON, MA — After receiving first place blue ribbon at both the county and state level, two members of a local 4-H club were asked to give their award winning Visual Presentations at the Eastern States Exposition, or Big E.

Nathan Murphy (if you can spot him in the photo) gave and excellent talk on camouflage. His younger brother, Alex, warned us all about the hidden sugars in many of our processed foods. Each boy gave their visual presentation in front of small crowds at the New England Center stage four times over the course of the day. Each year 4-H’ers from throughout New England have the opportunity to present demonstrations, presentations and performing arts to the 1.6 million visitors of The Big E. Only the best of all Visual Presentations in Massachusetts are invited to the Big E. The brothers did Wilmington proud.

4-H is an international organization where children build life skills while growing in confidence and independence. Both Alex and Nate are members of the 4-H Science Pirates, a science club based in Wilmington. Club members have fun learning through hands-on activities. The Science Pirates is open to all children in Middlesex county who are in the first grade or older. Go to https://ag.umass.edu/mass4h for more information on 4-H. To learn more about the Science Pirates and all the fun to be had, please email sciencepirates@gmail.com.
