4-H Science Volunteer Workshop

4-H Youth Extension Staff learn about and test Lego Mindstorm robots at the 4-H Science Volunteer Training.

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math is a buzz word these day! In 4-H we are working to take our existing rooted work in STEM and add new and excited opportunities for the youth in our communities across Indiana. The 4-H Grows Science Volunteer Training is an opportunity for existing and new volunteers who are interested in STEM to learn hands-on learning opportunities to take back to their communities. The topics for this vary by year, and are accompanied with lesson plans made to deliver with the 4-H Program in SPARK Clubs, 4-H Club meetings, or workshops! Through this workshop adults and teens will also learn about how to deliver STEM programs, network with successful STEM educators and volunteers, learn about experiential learning and much more!

4-H Livestock Volunteer Conference

The Indiana 4‐H Livestock Volunteer Conference is designed for 4‐H volunteers that are involved in 4-H Animal Science programs that are interested in learning more about designing educational opportunities for 4‐H members that are age‐appropriate, hands‐on and fun. This training offers volunteers an overview of the Indiana 4-H Youth Development Program, Characteristics of Positive Youth Development and Experiential Learning. Volunteers will then break into specific tracks as identified by their registration. This includes hands-on learning activities that can be used to start or continue livestock programming centered around the 4-H Mission Areas (Science, Citizenship, Healthy Living).
