Massachusetts 4-H Program expanded its traditional one-day science program to a 3-day 2-night science opportunity on the UMass Amherst Campus. Each year youth have the opportunity to select a track of study where they spend the day exploring a field of science with faculty, staff or a professional in the field. The experience is rounded off with short workshops, skillathons, and other activities to expose them to a wider array of science fields all while experiencing college life. Track choices include: Exploring the Human Body with Physics, Veterinary Science, Movie Making and Food Science: Farm to Fork! Participants sleep in the dorms, eat in the dining hall and visit key buildings and facilities on campus.
