Science & Technology
Dream of inventing a robot to do your chores?
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.
