ORONO Designing a container to assist a University of Maine Climate Change Institute professor with research is the focus of a UMaine 4-H Science Saturday workshop Feb. 14, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Edward T. Bryand Global Sciences Center on campus.

Youth in grades 6-8 will build a canister to keep ice core samples gleaned from the Peruvian Andes frozen and intact for research. Participants also will tour Sawyer Environmental Research Center. And, after lunch, youth will have the option to swim at the pool in the New Balance Student Recreation Center.

The $15 fee includes the science program and lunch; the optional swim is $3. Registration materials are available at umaine.edu/4h/home/science-saturday. Maximum enrollment is 20; Feb. 6 is the deadline to register. For more information, or to request a disability accommodation, contact Jessica Brainerd, (207) 581-3877.
