4-H National Youth Science Day
National Youth Science Day (NYSD) provides access and opportunity for kids to learn about STEM topics (science, technology, engineering and math) by participating in a hands-on STEM challenge.
For the past ten years, 4‑H has developed hands-on challenges that shows kids how STEM skills can be applied to the world around them. This fall, we expect to reach more than 150,000 kids at thousands of events across all 50 states through NYSD.
4‑H will hold NYSD events throughout the month of October in classrooms, clubs, homes and after-school spaces across the country.
Code Your World
This October, 4‑H and Google will launch an exciting National Youth Science Day challenge, Code Your World, which invites kids to get involved in computer science through hands-on doing.
Code Your World is a four-part computer science (CS) challenge that teaches kids to apply CS to the world around them through hands-on activities. Developed by Google and West Virginia University Extension Service, it includes a computer-based activity on Google’s CS First platform and three unplugged activities that bring coding to life through games and interaction.
Code Your World uses games and hands-on fun to teach kids important CS and computational thinking concepts, and is perfect for first-time and beginner coders ages 8-14.
