Galactic Quest takes youth on an out-of-this world adventure and makes connections to the 4-H pillars—STEM, civic engagement, healthy living, and agriculture. The challenge activities allow youth to develop inquiry, observational, and problem-solving skills while they make discoveries and develop their STEM identities.

This 4 week program is open to any youth ages 8 to 14 years who are looking to spark an interest in STEM and inspire real-world actions. Registration is required for each program!
