SDSU Extension 4-H Youth Development Program has made improving science literacy a priority, and is working to develop the next generation of agriculture scientists. A study of youth development by Tufts University shows that young people who participate in 4-H excel in school and science, and are more likely to pursue a career in science, engineering or computer technology than their peers. 4-H’s hands-on interactive programs expose youth to cutting-edge technology in agriculture that produces abundant, healthy and economical food. The 4-H Science of Agriculture Challenge asks teams of youth to work with agriculture experts to explore and develop science-based solutions to agriculture-related issues they have identified in their communities.
