Fun and learning at fair


Youth at the 2016 Champaign County Fair get some education while making headbands at the STEAM Academy, a new feature. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, arts and math. 4-H started the program to give kids something fun to do that ties into all of those subjects. The academy will be held at the fair from 2:30-4:30 p.m. through Wednesday at the 4-H Growing Youth to Youth Garden, near the Rabbit barn. Pictured are Lily Gunsaulies of Urbana in the white shirt and Rylee Kilbride of Urbana in the blue shirt.
