Engineering and Technology
Through engineering and technology projects, 4-H helps youth learn about the iterative engineering design process, attributes of design, impacts of systems, and effects of technology on the environment.
4-H Engineering and Technology Projects
Robotics provides youth experiences in science processes, engineering design principles and technology processes working with household items and parts to complete simple design challenges.
TechXcite is an after-school engineering curriculum developed at Duke University’s Pratt School of Engineering. It offers a rich and vibrant exploration of engineering, mathematics, science and technology and is centered on seven themes.
The curriculum was developed as part of a National Science Foundation-sponsored program. It was utilized in 4-H supported after-school programs across the country. It is no longer used in California, but the curriculum is free and still available.
