Science & Technology

Science can be defined as the study of the world around us; a thread that runs through all aspects of our lives. Science is the theory that lies behind all 4-H projects. Technology can be defined as the tools and applications of science that help individuals advance their world and their own development. 

The Michigan 4-H science and technology program area cuts across all program and project areas.  It is also specific projects in 4-H such as aerospace, computers, small engines, electricity, electronics, astronomy and robotics.

For more information on science and technology, visit the program page on the Michigan 4-H webpage.
