Science and Technology Projects

Science and Technology projects can take many forms.  4-H members can build a project in the Science and Technology project area by joining a Lego Robotics club, learning to make and blast off rockets, participating in school science fairs or 4-H demonstration contests, building a lamp or many other things the imagination can imagine!

You can start here for some ideas:

Clubs
First Lego League Team (ages 9-14)
Junior Lego Club (ages 5-8)
