4-H National Youth Science Day – Join in the Fun!

What is National 4-H Youth Science Day?

4-H National Youth Science Day (NYSD) is the world’s largest youth-led science experiment. Every year thousands of youth take part in the National Science Challenge focusing on important STEM topics and issues. NYSD takes place during National 4-H Week (October 1-7, 2017).

What is the experiment this year?

The 2017 4-H National Youth Science Day challenge is called Incredible Wearables. The Incredible Wearables experiment is a fun way for youth to build wearable fitness trackers. The 70 to 90-minute hands-on project is suitable for 4th to 12th graders.
