Rockets to the Rescue!

4-H National Youth Science Day (NYSD) is an exciting, interactive learning experience that engages thousands of youth across the country in conducting the National Science Experiment. That national 4-H NYSD will take place on October 8, 2014. 

The University of Arizona developed the 2014 National Science Experiment: Rockets to the Rescue! Students will build and launch their own rockets and learn about rocket science and aerospace engineering. Find a local NYSD event near you or learn more about the experiment. 

This year, 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. 

Science kits for the 2014 National Science Experiment are available for purchase - buy now from the 4-H Mall.
