Career Explorations is a three-day event for youth on the Cornell University campus. The purpose of this conference is to provide youth with exposure to academic fields and career exploration, to develop leadership skills, to provide hands-on experience in a college setting and to introduce you to Cornell University. The event is made up of two grade specific tracts: University U for youth entering grades 8-9 and Focus for Teens for youth entering grades 10-12.

The goal of the CCE Energy & Climate Change Team is to increase the capacity of CCE 4-H Educators to present quality programs with a focus on energy and an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering and Applied Math (STEM). One of the goals is to help increase 4-H youth educators awareness of modeling energy and climate wise choices at the office and during 4-H meetings and events.

4-Hers are having a blast exploring geospatial sciences from simple Geocaching (using GPS receivers to look for hidden treasure boxes all around the world) to complex community mapping projects.  New local clubs are forming as a result of a generous grant opportunity sponsored by Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI).  The result is 4-Hers are learning to use Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers to collect spatial data, plot results on detailed maps, and provide useful resources to community planners.

Nationally, 4-H has launched a curriculum that has three phases - junk drawer robotics, virtual robotics and NXT platform robotics. National 4-H has a formal partnership with FIRST Robotics, which has helped build new partnering relationships within NYS. FIRST teams exhibit in the 4-H Youth Building at the New York State Fair.     

Youth of all ages love the challenge of robotics.

Civic engagement is the broadest mission mandate; it incorporates youth voice, leadership, respect, history, community youth development, SET, and Healthy Lifestyles.

According to National 4-H: 

4-H Citizenship is the knowledge, skills, attitudes and motivation that give youth the capacity to move beyond one's individual self-interest and to be committed to the well-being of some larger group. 4-H Citizenship incorporates civic engagement, civic education, service, and personal development.

4-H aims to grow the next generation of inventors, entrepreneurs and problem-solvers by giving youth plenty of opportunities to try their hands at real world science.

GROW CURIOSITY

In 4-H STEM, we create supportive relationships that nurture wonder and fuel learning through investigation and design! Youth and adults work together to create new understanding and design community solutions.
