Science and Technology

Do you like to work with engines and/or computers? Are you curious about outer space and flight?  Do you want to learn how to build and program a robot? This category of projects provides youth with opportunities to design, build, problem solve, and investigate a variety of physical phenomena. Youth can design and build a rocket, learn how to conserve electricity, learn how to use GPS/GIS, work with robots, and more!

This project area has projects available for individual cloverbud learning, general individual learning, and general group learning. Each activity guide includes a separate achievement program and activities, that promote learning and interaction with other youth, adult helpers, family members and your community. The group helper guides contain ready‐to‐use group activities that can be used by older youth, teachers and project leaders. You can preview some National 4-H project materials on the web at:
