Experience 4-H

A 4-H club is a place where young people and adults come together to do things that help them:

  • Be what they want to be.
  • Learn about what interests them most.
  • Share how they feel about their activities and their lives in general.
  • Do fun things that also help them learn more.
  • Relate to peers and the adults in their lives in positive  ways.

Michigan 4-H youth programs are open to boys and girls aged 5 to 19. Although 4-H provides learning materials, events and training in a variety of program areas, the opportunities for 4-H involvement is only restricted by participants’ interests and imaginations. Club and group leaders are encouraged to survey the young people they work with to determine what projects, ideas and activities to pursue. 

For 4-H online registration instructions: Use this link for instructions

To Enroll in 4-H or to Register for a Club/Program go to 4-H online; register online

HOUR OF CODE LOGO

HOUR OF CODE 2017!

The week of December 5 - 11 , 2016

This is a GLOBAL EVENT!

HOUR OF CODE GLOBAL MAP

Bring computer science to your school.

Start with an Hour of Code

With technology changing every industry on the planet, computing knowledge has become part of a well-rounded skillset. But only one in every four schools teaches computer science! Good news is, we’re on our way to change this. If you heard about the Hour of Code last year, you might know it made history. 100 million students have now discovered how accessible and fun computer science can be by doing just one Hour of Code.

The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. Learn more at http://HourofCode.com    

Contact the Roscommon MSU Extension office at; (989) 275-5043 for more information.
