XENIA — Are you an Ohio classroom educator who wants to bring the science of the life cycle into your classroom in the most amazing and exciting way? Are you a parent who would love to see this program in your child’s classroom?
Students can learn so much from chicks? ChickQuest is a Science Alive 4-H School Enrichment program that challenges youth to use STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) skills to investigate the life cycle of an embryonic chicken egg.
From monitoring living eggs to observing fluffy chicks, these lively activities pique curiosity, encourage collaboration and communication, and provide young scientists with unforgettable experiences. Students will actively participate in numerous lessons prior to the chicks hatching.
Students will learn about habitats, measure eggs and make predictions, research other animals that hatch eggs, and work through the engineering design process. The chicks hatch after being in the incubator for 21 days.
It is a first come first serve basis. We have enough to have 33 classes for each session. Please feel free to share this information and link with any other teachers that might be interested.
The cost for one dozen fertilized eggs, teaching kit, and incubator, and automatic egg turner is $25. If teachers are interested in 1 dozen fertilized eggs without the incubator, automatic egg turner, and teaching kit, the cost $15. All interested teachers should visit go.osu.edu/greenecounty4hchickquest.
