Air Force Youth Programs Participate in National Youth Science Day
On October 10, 2012, millions of young people across the nation became scientists for the day during the fifth annual 4-H National Youth Science Day (NYSD). NYSD is the premier national rallying event for 4-H Science programming, bringing together youth, volunteers and educators from the nation's 111 land-grant colleges and universities to simultaneously complete the National Science Experiment. AF Youth Programs had more than 2,000 youth participate in this year's experiment, the 4-H Eco Bot Challenge, an engaging engineering design experiment that provided participants the opportunity to program an autonomous robot to clean up a simulated environmental spill. AF teams planned, designed, built and tested robots to complete the mission and are now eligible to apply for Innovation Awards totaling $10,000. Youth Programs continues to expand opportunities for youth in Science, Technology and Mathematics and the partnership with 4-H and the Land Grant Universities help make this possible.
