Andrew ‘Boz’ Bosworth grew up in California 4-H, where he raised sheep and pigs and learned to code when he was 10. Today, the skills he learned in 4-H and his passion for science and technology led him to join the Facebook team in 2006, where he developed the social network’s News Feed, Groups, and Messenger features.
Now, as the Vice President of Augmented and Virtual Reality and a father of two, the 4-H alum wants to inspire more kids to find a passion for STEM learning as he did when he was younger. That passion has also inspired him to invest $1 million in STEM access and education through 4-H, which he will use to match all gifts through the end of the year.
During the holiday season, you can learn more about Boz’s 4-H story and love of STEM.

I had a goal in my head to try to ignite a passion for science and learning about science to kids across the country, and 4-H felt like the place to do it. Certainly, that was my own experience coming up in the program.
