Inspiring the Next Generation of Leaders in STEM
Access to quality science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education shouldn’t be determined by where you live. Kids all across the U.S. should be exposed to STEM. Not only is it important for the development of our youth, but it’s also important for our country’s future.
Our passion towards STEM education is the core driver of our initiatives with 4-H. As the nation’s premier youth development organization, they have a long history of leading innovative programs, and we are proud to support the work they are doing.
The 2019 4-H National Youth Science Day Challenge Kit is now available! The 2019 Challenge, Game Changers, developed by Google and West Virginia University Extension, teaches kids how to use computer science to create games, solve problems, and engage with topics they care passionately about.

4-H and HughesNet are proud to announce an online resource that provides fun, easy, and hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) activities to everyone! The 4-H STEM Lab is an online center where you can find some of the best STEM activities from top public universities and 4-H groups across the country. STEM Lab introduces kids to exciting activities through experiential learning. Build a robot, experience chemistry with fuzzy foam, or build a windmill with your kids and learn about STEM topics along the way.
Together, our organizations serve the same small, local communities across America. We are passionate about STEM education, building future leaders, and the role they will play in advancing our country’s competitiveness in the global economy. That’s what makes us natural partners in inspiring our next generation of scientists.
We’re investing at the local and regional levels to introduce youth to STEM education and to get them involved in hands-on science activities. From National Youth Science Day to HughesNet STEM Days at 4-H summer camps, we’re motivating 4-H kids, families, and alumni to support 4-H and their science education programs.
