The 4-H Animal Science Resource Blog was created to connect 4-H members, volunteers, parents, and staff to the resources and inspiration needed to support STEM learning within our clubs. The project has four primary objectives.
- increase the STEM programming occurring at the club level in all 4-H animal projects
- strengthen the youth connection to Rutgers and its animal science resources
- increase awareness and understanding of current issues within the field of animal science
- increase awareness and interest in animal science careers.
4-H members, volunteers, parents, and staff, along with collaborating experts from throughout the state, create and share content through the blog that is used by clubs to support their programming. All blog posts illustrate ways for everyone within 4-H to address these four objectives, ultimately leading to more knowledgeable, skilled, and successful 4-Hers and community members.
A Project of New Jersey 4-H Youth Development
New Jersey 4-H provides educational outreach programming for youth in grades K-13 (one year out of high school) through 4-H clubs, special interest programs, school enrichment, afterschool programs, and overnight camping.
Regardless of the subject matter – whether it be science, healthy living or citizenship, 4-H uses a learn-by-doing approach to help youth learn responsibility, community awareness and character development.
New Jersey 4-H Youth Development is a department of the Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station.
