Twenty-five local 4-H members, like thousands of other youth across the country, took part in the 4-H National Youth Science Day (4-H NYSD) project, Motion Commotion, on Oct. 7.  
The project had 4-H members exploring the physical and human factors of motion using toy cars to simulate a speeding car collision and distracted driving.
