Heads In, Hearts In: A Delivery Approach to Family Enrichment Programming – Science Activities

This resource is designed to help Michigan State University Extension staff members involve partners in facilitating a family enrichment program around the topic of science education.

4-H’s mission is to empower youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults. One goal to achieve that mission is to connect in-school learning with out-of-school-time opportunities that enhance learning.  That’s precisely the focus of Heads In, Hearts In: A Delivery Approach to Family Enrichment 4-H Programming.  These resources encourage youth and families to use their minds (putting their “heads in”) as a tool to expand their knowledge around variety of topic areas.  By creating a shared educational experience, youth and their families will work, grow and learn together, putting their “hearts in” to the process.
