National Science Day
Check out the National Youth Science Day (NYSD) experiment for 2009!
If you’re looking for something fun, and relevant to your club members’ lives and future, participating in this event is a great way to go. This experiment and the online resources that go with it would also make a great addition to new member recruitment efforts and for sharing what 4-H has to offer with your community.
Here’s the news release from National 4-H:
Registration Open for 4-H National Youth Science Day
On October 7, 2009, millions of youth across the nation will participate in 4-H National Youth Science Day, an event designed to engage young people in the environmental issues facing the nation. This year, youth will complete the “Biofuel Blast” science experiment to learn how renewable products, such as harvested plant materials, can make energy.
