Rolling out 4-H STEM Youth Development Programming
Colorado State 4-H Office, (STEM K-12) has four Mobile Labs available for Colorado 4-H Agent use. These labs are customized cargo trailers that have been converted into functional educational mobile labs. These mobile units are intended to promote state-wide 4-H STEM Youth Development Programming through experiential hands-on educational experiences. These mobile labs have a broad spectrum of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) activities. Each lab has a program focus on STEM concepts which include: Environmental and physical Science, Computer Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Design, Energy, STEM Trade Skills and STEM educational and career pathway development.
4-H Mobile STEM labs are available in all regions of the state. Three times annually, these Mobile labs rotate from one region to the next. This practice allows 4-H agents in any part of the state to register for multiple labs annually. Lab titles = links.
