4H'ers Going to State in LEGO Competition
The groups research is focused on finding a way to alleviate salmonella contamination in pig holding pens before slaughter. Their solution was to run aqueous ozone through existing water systems to wash floors and at the same time kill bacteria.
This is the first time Plymouth County 4-H has been involved with the FIRST LEGO League Competition. FIRST, For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, sponsors a challenge for youth in 4th-8th grade each year. Brenda Welch, Youth Program Specialist with ISU Extension, says that she's happy to be working with the FIRST organization.
The members of team NERDZ going to state in the FIRST LEGO league competition are: Ote and Kara Albrecht, Morgan Boehme, Chance Irwin, Sally and Claudia Probst and Vivian and Renae Zynda.
