InHall County, there will be a Science Day Experiment at the UNL ExtensionOffice located in College Park. The event is Oct. 9 from 6-7 p.m., youth will design an eco-bot that will clean up toxicspills.

The eco-bot is made from atoothbrush head, a motor and a battery. Each team will design a prototype and testtheir eco-bot on the challenge mat. Birdseed will represent the spill. At the end of 2 minutes, contestants will count thenumber of squares their eco-bot cleared and then attemptto change their design in order to clean more of the spill.

Using data they collect, it will be determinedwhich eco-bot did the best job cleaning up the spill.
