Watch this! Discovering Science: Minnesota 4-H builds the next generation of STEM leaders

A new 2 ½-minute video about 4-H STEM puts a spotlight on young people who are getting excited about science through 4-H. Jobs in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and math) are growing three times faster than other industries, but only 5 percent of U.S. students get their undergraduate degree in science and engineering. This video shows that hands-on experiences in 4-H STEM set Minnesota youth on a path to continued learning in college--often at the University of Minnesota--and careers.
