The third annual 4-H National Youth Science Day will be held on Wednesday, October 6, 2010. Created to combat a shortage of American young people pursuing science college majors and careers,4-H National Youth Science Day seeks to spark an early youth interest and leadership in science. 4-H’s year-round, out-of-school programming is developed by our nation’s 109 Land-grant Universities and is implemented through the 3,100 local Cooperative Extension offices.
Experiment to Focus on Water Quality
The 2010 National Science Experiment, 4-H2O, will focus on water quality and climate change – two very important issues facing our global community. Designed by North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, the experiment will use a three-tiered model to engage youth of all ages to learn how carbon dioxide can affect aquatic organisms. Additional materials will be available in late May. Have a question? Email us at 4-HNYSD@4-H.org.
