The Ashland Innovation 4-H Club on held their first in-person club visual presentations of projects before a panel of judges, other club members, and parents and family on Feb. 20. The club has been fully virtual for two years due to the pandemic and is slowly transitioning back to live meetings. Eleven club members participated, and some got a chance for the Big E, a UMass 4-H program at the Mount Ida campus, to promote and improve public speaking and to present to a larger audience.
The participants and their projects were: Srimanth Aroon - The Titanic; Aarav Bhanoo - Robots - Big E; Shrivardhan Dasari – Pollution; Rupinika Golla - AI - Big E; Viraj Harish - Human Immune System; Saish Manshani - The Age Of Exploration; Hasini Meruva - The Northeast Region; Anish Meruva – Inflation; Siddharth Raj Monagari - Mars Rovers -Big E; Adhvaith Sai - The Sun; and Sai Hitesh Vuppala - 3d Printing - Big E.
In 2021, Hasini Meruva and other club members entered the AT&T International Inventor’s Challenge, a global contest from Imagination.org and AT&T where students show how creativity and ingenuity can solve real world problems. Meruva was recently featured on Yahoo Finance, Announcing Winners of the 2021 AT&T Inventor’s Challenge, https://yhoo.it/3IR3H5n.
