4-H National Science Day is an exciting, interactive learning experience that engages thousands of youth across the country in conducting the National Science Experiment. Join 4-H and be a part of the largest youth science experiment in the World! Five million youth completed the project in 2013!

2014 Rockets to the Rescue

The University of Arizona developed the 2014 National Science Experiment, Rockets to the Rescue, which explores the field of aerospace engineering.

Youth will be tasked with the same mission: in light of the recent natural disasters such as Typhoon Haiyan, National 4-H Council is asking youth to design and build an aerodynamic, food transportation device that can deliver a payload of nutritious food to disaster victims. Youth will learn engineering concepts, develop math skills, learn about nutrition and help solve a relevant, global issue.
