Interested in adding to or improving your science curriculum? The Massachusetts 4-H Embryology Program is a four-week science program for the classroom; it teaches about the development of life and encourages teamwork and responsibility as students care for the eggs in the incubator and the chicks in the brooder. The UMass 4-H Program offers this program for schools and educational groups in the Western Massachusetts Region (Berkshire, Franklin, Hampshire and Hampden counties), and Middlesex, Norfolk and Plymouth counties.
