4-H Youth Development

SpaceTech Trainings and Experiences

The Kansas 4-H SpaceTech Program focuses on 4-H space technology and 4-H science, engineering and technology issues.  The experience is headed up by the Kansas 4-H SpaceTech Action Team that is a group of Kansas 4-H youths, aged 14-18, adult volunteer 4-H leaders, 4-H parents, Extension staff and other enthusiasts. 

The experience concentrates in the core issues of astronomy, aviation, robotics, rocketry, technology, unmanned aerial systems (UASs, also known as drones) and computers.  The SpaceTech experience is accomplished through multi-county/area trainings, as well as collaborating with the Kansas 4-H Foundation and Rock Springs 4-H Center to provide hands-on programs and technology experiences/camps for 4-H members and families.

Future Kansas 4-H SpaceTech Training and Experience Dates

The Kansas 4-H SpaceTech Action Team will be looking at possible 2020 training dates. As that information becomes available, it will be posted to this site. If you have a need or request for a SpaceTech training for your county/district or several counties in your area, please contact Anissa Jepsen at ajepsen@ksu.edu
