Woodworking Science

The 4-H wood sciences program provides youth with educational information about wood and how it can be used to construct items. The wood science project develops project skills (i.e., safe practices, using hand tools, using power tools, making specialized wood cuts) and life skills (i.e., decision-making, using science and technology, developing communication skills). These fun-filled, hands-on learning experiences are provided under the direction of caring adults.

Members must complete three activities in the project manual and a record sheet. Completed manual and record sheet must be turned in by July 1st. An article made according to the plans in each Grade level will be displayed at the Adams County 4-H fair for judging.

For Judging and Check-in information, consult the current 4-H Catalog.
