4-H to Study Wind Energy


The National 4-H Council, which has made concerted efforts to create more science and engineering programs in the 4-H infrastructure, landed a $500,000 grant from the 3M Foundation to teach youths how to design and build alternative energy projects that use wind as the primary resource.

The council, which assists the 4-H Youth Development Program and its parent, the Cooperative Extension System of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, expects the grant to make projects possible at 3,150 local 4-H offices. 4-H celebrates its first annual National Youth Science Day on Oct. 8.
