State Science and Technology Fair of Iowa

Young Iowa scientists are gearing up for the State Science and Technology Fair of Iowa April 5. Iowa State and Extension and Outreach are long-time sponsors of this annual event.

Our 4-H youth development programs always have included hands-on STEM learning experiences with a solid focus on agricultural science, electricity, mechanics, entrepreneurship and natural sciences,” said 4-H STEM director Jay Staker. “Today, 4-H has grown to include rocketry, robotics, bio-fuels, renewable energy, computer science, environmental sciences and more.”
