25 Jun Elkhart County 4-H Extension
National Youth Science Day is the premier national rallying event for year-round 4-H science programming for youth, volunteers and educators from the nation’s land-grant colleges and universities to simultaneously complete a national science experiment. NYSD brings technology and new advancements to classrooms to give students hands-on experience and let them be scientists for a day. Research from Tufts Institute on Positive Youth Development shows that youth who participate in 4-H are more likely to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering or math. ECCF grant money was in support of National Youth Science Day for 4-H youth in Elkhart County.
