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.

SET initiatives are implemented through a variety of 4-H programs. Examples include:

  • State Fashion Board
  • Youth Wetlands Program
  • LOST Camp
  • Shooting Sports Ambassadors
  • Demonstrations
  • Contests
