The 4-H Science Toolkit is a collection of science activities - perfect for youth
grades 3-6. The activities have been developed for afterschool, in-school, clubs and youth groups, camps and others wishing to explore science. Lessons are written to be be "grab and go" for any leader or teacher.
4-H is often cited as one of the reasons adults have chosen science as a career
A project that includes large and small posters and hands-on activities. Workshops were held in 2014 in Tompkins, Ulster, and Jefferson Counties. Kits are housed at CCE Jefferson, CCE Ulster, and the Cornell Department of Astronomy.
4-H'ers are having a blast exploring geospatial sciences from simple Geocaching (using GPS receivers to look for hidden treasure boxes all around the world) to complex community mapping projects.
New project area developing in NYS. Page includes resources, links to events and programming.
Dr. Linda Rayor’s Naturalist Outreach STEM Video Series:
Cornell students share a passion for the biology and natural history of the world around us in these 10 to 15 minute STEM videos. Beautiful images help illustrate these appealing introductions to biological diversity.
These educational videos were funded by Cornell Cooperative Extension with Smith-Lever funds for the New York State 4-H program.
Associated with each of the videos are one or more 'presentation guides' which provide background information on each topic.
Check out the resources and ideas for teaching and implementing projects about energy.
This site gives an outline of STEM programming on a national level and explains how and why it is a part of 4-H's three core mission mandates.
4-Hers across the country participate in cool science experiments
4-H Shooting Sports joins STEM. Civic ecology and safety are combined as 4-H'ers nationally experience science.
This is a series of papers that will help to explore STEM programming
This report emphasizes the importance of defining appropriate outcomes and identifying good measures to understand whether, how, or when learning occurs.
