“Into the Lab” 2021
Youth, grades 6-8, can explore four fascinating science fields through a new virtual 4-H science series called 4-H ScienceExplorers: Into the Lab. As series participants, youth will dive into the fields of animal science, engineering, biotechnology, and forensics as they interact with real world scientists, tour science “labs,” learn about careers, and engage in relevant hands-on activities (based on supplies included in a kit that is provided).
Try suturing using a practice kit. Build a triboelectric generator. Extract DNA from wheat germ. Analyze mock forensic evidence.
