STEMMING the Gap
Kahler, Jim; Valentine, Nancy
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v76 n6 p54-55 Feb 2011
America has a gap when it comes to youth pursuing science and technology careers. In an effort to improve the knowledge and application of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), after-school programs can work in conjunction with formal in-school curriculum to improve science education. One organization that actively addresses this issue is 4-H. For more than a century, 4-H has been reaching youth with after-school science education. 4-H programs provide hands-on activities that pique students' interest in science. As the youth development program of Cooperative Extension and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 4-H's science programs are created by researchers from leading universities and colleges.
