This project 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).
Observing and studying wildlife can provide a lifetime of enjoyment. This project will help youth learn to identify wildlife, basic wildlife needs, and how wildlife interacts with other wildlife and with people. At the advanced level youth will learn how to create a wildlife habitat.
Youth will collect, observe and identify wildflowers common to the USA. They will learn about habitat, families, gardening with wildflowers, exotic invasives, edible wild plants, medicinal plants, and making dyes with wild plants.
Youth will learn basic information about weather, including what causes variations in weather and why we have different seasons and climates on the earth. In this project youth will observe and record weather conditions and learn weather symbols.
This project provides youth a fun and hands-on learning experience that helps them learn more about the Veterinary Science profession and opportunities for careers in animal health. Subjects such as general health care, physiology, anatomy, and careers are presented in the curricular materials through workshops such as Science Workshops for Youth and through hands on experiences with local veterinarians.
The Tractor program provides youth with educational information about agricultural tractors and garden tractors and machinery that develops project skills (e.g., principles of engine operation, hydraulic systems, electrical systems, safe operation) and life skills (e.g., decision making, using science and technology, developing communication skills).
