4-H STEM at the State Fair curriculum

Publication Number: P3708

Experience the Mississippi State Fair with the young people in your life through hands-on STEM experiences. STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering, and math. Did you know that 76 percent of all 4-H projects are STEM-related? Preparing young people to meet the needs of our state, our country, and our world is critical to both their success and our future. In 4-H, we believe that youth should learn by doing; this means applying what they have learned through hands-on experiences. This STEM at the State Fair Facilitator’s Guide provides several fun lessons you can do with youth before, during, and after the State Fair. When appropriate, each lesson is cross walked to recommended educational standards.

As you make plans to visit the State Fair this year, please reach out to your local county Extension office and join us for 4-H Day at the Fair!
