Every summer, North Carolina 4-H Electric Congress draws young people from across the state for hands-on learning, and fun, in science, technology, engineering and math related to electricity.
The N.C. 4-H youth development program and the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering at NC State University have been holding the congress with generous support from power companies, including Duke Power and Dominion Energy.
This year, the event brought 175 young people and their 4-H leaders and Cooperative Extension agents to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte from July 11-13. They learned not only about principles of electricity but also about energy-related careers and more.
