Inspiring the Next Generation of Leaders in STEM
Access to quality science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education shouldn’t be determined by where you live. Kids all across the U.S. should be exposed to STEM. Not only is it important for the development of our youth, but it’s also important for our country’s future.
Our passion towards STEM education is the core driver of our initiatives with 4-H. As the nation’s premier youth development organization, they have a long history of leading innovative programs, and we are proud to support the work they are doing.
4-H National Youth Science Day is the world’s largest youth-led science experiment. For the 10th year in a row, thousands of youth will take part in National Youth Science Day focusing on important STEM topics and issues.
This year’s challenge, Incredible Wearables, will take place on October 4, 2017 where youth can be part of setting a Guinness World Record. Incredible Wearables was developed by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and gives youth the opportunity to work together to design, build, and refine a fitness tracker.
Together, our organizations serve the same small, local communities across America. We are passionate about STEM education, building future leaders, and the role they will play in advancing our country’s competitiveness in the global economy. That’s what makes us natural partners in inspiring our next generation of scientists.
We’re investing at the local and regional levels to introduce youth to STEM education and to get them involved in hands-on science activities. From National Youth Science Day to HughesNet STEM Days at 4-H summer camps, we’re motivating 4-H kids, families, and alumni to support 4-H and their science education programs.
