families invited to the 4-H Makers exhibition | Food and fun

SANDWICH—New Hampshire 4-H is excited to welcome families to the 4-H Makers Expo on May 7, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Sandwich Fairgrounds.

The 4-H Makers Expo features STEM and craft demonstrations, fun activities, and exciting challenges. Join us for an exhibition and celebration of all things creative and practical! This event is free and open to the public. Carroll County 4-H will be selling food, so bring an appetite.

Creators will be tasked with completing various challenges to unleash their creative genius, such as designing and sharing an innovative chain reaction machine in the STEaMpunk chain reaction or building a honeycomb structure that can hold over 5 pounds in the 4-H Honeycomb Home Challenge.

Need speed? In the Mousetrap Car SPEED Challenge, participants will build and drive a mousetrap car capable of traveling as fast as possible. The Grilled Cheese Challenge will showcase cooking skills, while the Artisan Showcase will feature clothing, quilting projects, knit/crochet items and other sewn items. In the Makers Share Fair, attendees can show off homemade items, do a public demonstration, or put on an exhibit based on cool things made in 4-H project areas. Through Sew Green Fabric Creations, 4-H members will use green fabric to design and sew an original creation.

“The 4-H Makers Expo is a great event for 4-H members to show off their skills, engage in friendly competition and have fun with friends. It’s also an opportunity for young people who want to join 4-H to learn more about our programs and our community,” said Field Specialist Claes Thelemarck.

For more fun activities and challenges, visit: Although this event is free and open to the public, pre-registration is required for some of the challenges.
