4-H National Youth Science Day

4-H National Youth Science Day (NYSD) is the premiere national rallying event for year-round 4-H Science programming, bringing together youth, volunteers and educators from the nation’s land-grant colleges and universities and the Cooperative Extension System to simultaneously complete the National Science Experiment. This annual event seeks to spark an early youth interest in science and future science careers. National Youth Science Day presents a great opportunity to engage youth in hands on science, engineering and technology activities while developing critical thinking skills.

Developed by the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, the Incredible Wearables kit is a fun way for kids to build wearable fitness trackers.

The kit is perfect for classrooms, clubs and at-home use. The 70 to 90-minute hands-on project is suitable for 4th to 12th graders.

Each low-cost kit can serve up to 10 kids at a time and is reusable.

Through a generous partnership with DuPont, the 4-H Mall is offering one free kit for every two purchased! This deal is available while supplies of free kits last, or until June 1, whichever comes first. Free kits are limited to five per customer. Buy a Kit
