Nebraska 4-H Youth Development Program Priority

Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics

Science, technology, engineering, and applied mathematics form the STEM program priority. Nebraska 4-H works to develop science interests, skills, and abilities in the areas of agriculture, energy, environmental stewardship, and technology, of youth across the state. Through STEM programs, youth develop positive interests and attitudes about science and related careers, gain a base knowledge of science content and their projects, develop science skills and abilities, apply science to their 4-H projects, utilize science skills and abilities to solve everyday situations, teach others about science related to their projects, process information, analyze complex problems and make informed decisions regarding current agricultural, environmental, energy, and technology related issues, and seek out higher education opportunities and careers related to science.
