University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension's 4-H youth development program is open to youth ages 5-18. Emphasis is on science, ag literacy, healthy lifestyles, career development and citizenship/leadership.
4-H members learn by doing hands-on projects. The 4-H cat project is one of many animal science projects youth can participate in. Learn more at http://4h.unl.edu/4hcurricu....
In Lancaster County, many 4-H'ers showcase their projects at the Lancaster County Super Fair -- information at http://superfair.org. After this year's 4-H Cat Show at the Super Fair, the youth recreated a tunnel walk with their own ribbon-winning cats!
In Embryology, Lancaster County students hatch chicks in the classroom and witness the exciting miracle of life. Everyone can participate in Embryology online and watch chicks hatch each spring on EGG Cam at http://go.unl.edu/eggcam.
