Cub Scouts learn about nature during a STEM Day organized by the North Platte Community College STEM Club on Saturday. Among other things, the Cub Scouts researched animals native to Nebraska then created and presented a poster about the animals to others in their group.
Ecologist Dan Hitch was one of the experts who spoke to the children. The Cub Scouts were also given a set of binoculars to take home. They used the binoculars to observe animals, including a herd of deer, at the West Central Research and Extension Center in North Platte.
