4-H and Science – A Perfect Combination!

4-H and Science – A Perfect Combination! - Show Your 4-H Colours

4-H members display so much curiosity, creativity, and determination in asking, “Why?”. Promoting science in 4-H has allowed me to meet members who want to find solutions and answer questions, challenge themselves to create something new, and dive into a topic they are passionate about. I have also connected with leaders across the country who are inspired by science and want to bring the joy of inquiry to their clubs. From the 4-H Canada Science Fair, to our Science Champions, to silly science experiments on Facebook Live Q&As, it is clear that 4-H and science go so well together, and it is so rewarding to be able to be a part of it!
