More than 6 million young people across the country today will celebrate National 4-H Week, an annual celebration of 4-H during the first full week of October. During National 4-H Week, 4-H will showcase the great things that 4-H offers young people and highlights the incredible 4-H youth in the community who work each day to make a positive impact on the community.
Do you know kids who love science and fun science activities?
4‑H National Youth Science Day (NYSD) is the world’s largest youth-led science experiment. Every year thousands of youth are taking part in the National Science Challenge focusing on important STEM topics and issues.
On October 5, 2016, youth from 4‑H clubs, groups, and school programs across the country will participate in Drone Discovery, the 4‑H NYSD 2016 Engineering Design Challenge.
Congratulations to the Oregon 4-H Team consisting of Dara Easley, Dani Annala, Lynette Black, Patrick Willis, Virginia Bourdeau, and corporate partner Vernier for being selected for the 2015 National 4-H Youth Science Day Experiment. The event was held on October 7th, 2015.
the 2015 subject area focus was the Science of Motion. Oregon's winning experiment explores motion through the relationshup of speed and stopping distance. With the help of physicists, engineers and safety analysts the team was able to create an experience for 4-H youth to use science to evaulate stopping times and make connections to the dangers of distractions.
