Paper airplanes and propeller sticks fly around the room as kids chase their flying objects.

This is a special day at the Kirtland Air Force Base youth recreation center. It’s National Youth Science Day and the youth are learning about airplane flight and drones.

New Mexico State University’s 4-H agents Brittney Sonntag and Nicole Jaynes have brought the national 4-H activity to the youth center. Helping with the activities are volunteers from Sandia Labs. Lockheed Martin, parent company of Sandia Labs, is a national partner for the science day.

This is just one activity the 4-H agents provide for the children of military personnel through the 4-H Military Partnership program.
