Youth test their abilities to evaluate carcasses and identify meats

This MSU pre-college program teaches young people about Michigan’s diverse natural resources, environmental science, the Great Lakes ecosystems and management issues.

Youth interested in hands-on, interactive and experiential learning activities should plan to attend this year's Eco-Challenge experiencing biomimicry.

Experience a 5-day hands-on science based experience at Indian Springs Metropark (White Lake, MI) for youth ages 12-18. The 2014 4-H Eco-Challenge will be focused on Biomicry.

Scheduled hands-on science experiments for attendees of the fair

Attend this networking, learning and recognition banquet to honor the oustanding community achievements of Stewards who have completed the Conservation Stewards Program.

Learn about how our sustainable pasture-based dairy farm works to preserve our environment.

The open house and Science Blast will help more people discover what 4-H has to offer and have fun with science at the same time.

Science & Technology

One Million New Scientists. One Million New Ideas. (TM)Science can be defined as the study of the world around us; a thread that runs through all aspects of our lives. Science is the theory that lies behind all 4-H projects. Technology can be defined as the tools and applications of science that help individuals advance their world and their own development. 

The strength of 4-H lies in its strong volunteer base, its emphasis on hands-on experiential learning opportunities, programs that connect learning to real-life situations and its connection to the Land-Grant University system.

The Michigan 4-H science and technology program area cuts across all program and project areas. It is also specific projects in 4-H such as aerospace, computers, small engines, electricity, electronics, astronomy and robotics.

 Visit the National 4-H Council for science education information.
