4‑H STEM programs provide 4‑H youth the opportunity to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) through fun, hands-on activities and projects.
Helping Kids Succeed
4‑H STEM and agriculture programs equip young people with the skills they need to succeed in life, and are available through local clubs, schools and grant-funded programs. Focus areas include computer science, robotics, environmental science, agri-science, financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and veterinary science.
4‑H programs weave entrepreneurship into many different subject areas, whether it’s learning the economics of raising and selling livestock or using computer science to develop new technology. 4‑H’s financial literacy programs teach youth to navigate the challenges of the real world, such as understanding credit cards and interest rates and saving for retirement.
Environmental Science & Alternative Energy
4‑H’s programs provide young people first-hand experience in utilizing alternative energy, conserving energy and learning how to limit humanity’s impact on our environment.

There is a tremendous need for young people to know how to create technology, not just consume it. This is true across every industry, and that’s why 4-H computer science programs help prepare youth for college and career by teaching technical programming skills in languages like Scratch, Python and Java alongside essential life skills like problem solving, teamwork and resiliency.
Juntos 4‑H supports Latino students and their families bridge the gap between high school and higher education and teach financial literacy skills. Juntos 4‑H provides knowledge, skills and resources to prevent youth from dropping out and to encourage families to work together to gain access to college.
National Youth Science Day is 4-H’s annual initiative to inspire kids everywhere to take an interest in STEM topics (science, technology engineering and math) through hands-on learning. This year, 4-H and Google are teaming up to help kids bring their passions to life through the Game Changers challenge.
Do you like to invent, build or experiment? Have you ever taken something apart just to see how it works? The STEM National Youth Summit is for creative and curious innovators of the next generation. Participants make what they can with a variety of materials from a range of fields, utilizing their resourcefulness and creativity.
National 4-H Council and Google.org are working together to help kids everywhere gain skills needed for the future, like computer science (CS), computational thinking, communication and collaboration to kids across the country. Google’s support will expand the 4‑H CS Career Pathway to reach more than one million youth over the next three years.
