The 4-H Agent in Pueblo County, Colorado reached out to us with the following questions about our 4-H Maker programs and the success we have had with setting up afterschool and school enrichment programs that integrate and include 4-H participation and membership. She is especially interested in how this has been done within the Maker Movement.

Here's a list of the questions we will be answering for Colorado State University Extension 4-H:

1. Please explain how afterschool or school enrichment participants become 4-H members.
2. How do you handle chartering of short term 4-H maker clubs?
3. How do you orient, train and onboard volunteers who work with maker clubs?
4. How do you showcase these maker programs with stakeholders, I.e. Impact statements.
5. How are you evaluating these maker programs?
6. How have you overcome perceptions that "the tradition community club model is the only way to do 4-H"?
7. What costs are involved to the maker program participants, counties, state?
8. How much time is needed for a county agent to start a maker program?

As traditional face-to-face Extension office interactions decrease in favor of online dissemination, the makerspace creates an authentic engagement for Extension and the community. Makerspaces create opportunities for learners to make and learn from each other in a cooperative learning environment. Extension has an opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge of the land-grant educator and volunteer network to participate in a meaningful way. Creating and supporting makerspaces will increase the visibility of Extension and deliver content to a new audience. This effort will assist Extension in staying relevant in the 21st century.
