Texas 4-H Science, Technology, Engineering & Math Project
- Offered by
- Texas 4-H STEM Program
4-H is rooted in science and STEM is engrained in all 4-H projects, so youth members have the opportunity to learn through all types of 4-H activities, lessons, and contests. Beyond the scope of traditional 4-H projects, youth can learn how to build and program robots, 3D print, explore space, code software, launch rockets, and so much more. 4-H STEM projects fosters curiosity and sparks innovation.
Project clubs, groups, or teams can meet at the local level to learn basic to advanced skills. Contact your local County AgriLife Extension office to see if there is a club or group that meets near you.
A STEM camp is available each summer at the Texas 4-H Center. Visit their website for dates and details. Statewide leadership opportunities are available in the STEM project through the STEM Ambassador program.
