The United States faces a shortage of students entering science, engineering and technology related fields.
4-H recognized this deficiency and created the Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) mandate to increase focus on science in 4-H programs.
The Louisiana 4-H Youth Development Program offers youth opportunities to interact with science, engineering and technology through hands-on demonstrations, problem solving, personal in-depth projects and career exploration. All programs strive to develop a love of learning and curiosity in youth.
The focus areas include:
SET initiatives are implemented through a variety of 4-H programs. Examples include:
