This Year Marks 10th Annual 4-H National Youth Science Day
Submitted by: Melanie Biersmith

The 2017 4-H National Youth Science Day (NYSD) challenge is called "Incredible Wearables."  It is a hands-on project that challenges young people to use the engineering design process to build a wearable fitness tracker.  The experiment was designed by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Cooperative Extension and allows young people to learn how circuits, sensors, and health data can be blended with fashion to create a viable wearable tech product.  

While attention will be focused for NYSD on October 4, 2017, it's more than just a single day.  It is a catalyst that ignites in youth a spark of interest in STEM.  Through clubs, projects, and in-school education, youth are given the opportunity to nurture and grow that spark into a passion throughout the year.  

More information about NYSD, resources, and teaching kits may be found at
