Rockets to the Rescue!

The 2014 National Science Experiment, Rockets to the Rescue!, explores the field of aerospace engineering.

This year, youth will be tasked with the same mission: in light of the recent natural disasters such as Typhoon Haiyan, National 4-H Council is asking youth to design and build an aerodynamic food transportation device that can deliver a payload of nutritious food to disaster victims. Youth will learn engineering concepts, develop math skills, learn about nutrition and help solve a relevant, global issue.

Science kits for the 2014 National Science Experiment are available for pre-order – buy now from the 4-H Mall.
