Engineer It!

Many everyday challenges (like answering, Who took my book?) can be solved by using the scientific method and the eight science and engineering practices that are highlighted at the Engineer It! workshop. Engineer It Challenge is a half-day workshop that engages potential and current 4-H members in engineering experiences. Participants delve into science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) areas and get a taste of what's involved in the Engineering Design Challenge. 4-H volunteers and youth leaders are your hosts and instructors; they'll guide you through a fun-filled session of hands-on challenges that might inspire you to form a 4-H Engineering club!
