4-H STEM Challenge
This year’s National 4-H STEM Challenge will take students to be Explorers of the Deep! Explorers of the Deep focuses on the mysteries and adventures of ocean exploration—with robots! Young people learn how to use science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to explore Earth’s Ocean and how it relates to all life on the planet.
The 2022 Challenge helps young people develop observational and critical thinking skills while exploring the interconnected nature between the ocean and humans, regardless of where they live. They will learn about the incredibly complex relationship between Earth’s oceans and the global climate. According to a recent survey, 84% of teens would like to be involved with shaping the future of our environment.
Explorers of the Deep can help empower young people to innovate and take action to drive positive change.
Learn more about this year’s 4-H STEM Challenge and how you and your students can get involved at 4-h.org/parents/4-h-stem-challenge.
