IFAS Extension Orange County Fund

Fund Purpose
Support the IFAS Extension in Orange County.

Your gift supports the Orange County 4-H Exploding Bacon Robotics Club! The club competes in FIRST robotics, proving that with hard work, cooperation, and a little engineering, Pigs really can fly.

Since its inception in 2006, the team has grown from 6 kids and 3 adult mentors, to 30-40 student members in twelve schools from five counties, with a plethora of college and professional mentors leading the way. Just like FIRST, Exploding Bacon isn’t about building robots, it is all about building people. Students learn skills that will help them become better employees and citizens. Members also participate in a wide range of community outreach projects from educational robotic demonstrations to helping those in need.

Supports UF/IFAS Extension in Orange County, Fla. UF/IFAS Extension encompasses thousands of Extension faculty members, scientists, educators, administrative staff, and volunteers, all working to provide solutions for your life.
