2018 4-H National Youth Science Experiment
4-H’s 2018 National Youth Science Day Experiment
Code Your World
“This October, 4‑H and Google will launch an exciting National Youth Science Day challenge, Code Your World, inviting kids to get involved in computer science (CS) through hands-on doing. The national NYSD celebration kicks off October 1, 2018, and coding events can take place all throughout October.
Easier than ever to facilitate, Code Your World is a four-part challenge that teaches kids ages 8-14 to apply CS to the world around them through hands-on activities. Developed by Google and West Virginia University Extension Service, it includes a computer-based activity on Google’s CS First platform and three unplugged activities that bring coding to life through games and interaction.”
What is National Youth Science Day?
“National Youth Science Day (NYSD) provides access and opportunity for kids to learn about STEM topics (science, technology, engineering, and math) by participating in a hands-on STEM challenge.
For the past ten years, 4‑H has developed hands-on challenges that show kids how STEM skills can be applied to the world around them. This fall, we expect to reach more than 150,000 kids at thousands of events across all 50 states through NYSD.
4‑H will hold NYSD events throughout the month of October in classrooms, clubs, homes and after-school spaces across the country. Check out a preview of this year’s CODE YOUR WORLD challenge and find out how you can get involved!”
