In the Texas 4-H Computer Science (CS) Project, youth will have the opportunity to learn about programming (coding), app building, circuitry, creating animations, website development, cyber security, career exploration, and so much more. Participants will utilize technology to develop their collaboration, computational thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills to better position themselves as tomorrow’s leaders.
Project clubs, groups, or teams can meet at the local level to learn basic to advanced skills. Contact your local county Extension office to see if there is a club or group that meets near you.

More choices in 4-H STEM

  • Course

    Developing a strong foundation in mathematics during the preschool years with high expectations regardless of gender, race, socioeconomic or language background is critical for all preschool children. Specific math materials which allow children to explore mathematical ideas throughout the classroom are provided.

  • Course

    Developmentally appropriate preschool STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) experiences give young children opportunities to develop divergent thinking, problem solving, and cause and effect. Experiences have great potential to affect brain development during the crucial early childhood window of opportunity.

  • Course

    Children identify a problem, use stuff to make stuff that does stuff to solve the problem. Learn about research related to engineering design with preschoolers and ideas/activities to encourage and support children in becoming junior engineers. Planning, building, and testing out are the engineering skills of the future.

  • Course

    Experience a variety of counting activities and developmentally appropriate approaches for teaching addition and subtraction. Explore principles, objectives, and developmental stages of counting and examine ways to support children’s counting in everyday situations. Number and operations tasks for preschoolers are provided.

  • Course

    Going beyond counting and using numbers is important for preschool children. Geometry, spatial relations and shape, processes and developmental stages of measurement, and how preschoolers develop understanding of classifying, graphing, and patterning are explored. Classroom tasks with instructions are given.

  • Course

    Explore math in an early childhood setting and see how mathematical concepts develop from simple to complex. Identify five math content areas and gain strategies for integrating concepts in a way that will engage preschool children all day. Connect math concepts to literacy in a math-rich environment in the classroom.
