4-H Youth Experiences in Science (YES)
The 4-H YES curriculum is designed to foster inquiry and engage children ages 5 to 8 in the process of exploration. Young children are introduced to the formal scientific process by performing a variety of scientific tasks including observing, organizing, comparing and communicating. A cross-age teaching model engages teenage volunteers as teachers.
After attending a 10-hour training session (and equipped with the YES curriculum and adult support), the teens work in teams to prepare and deliver the weekly science activities.
