Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts:  mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity.  This project fosters mastery by encouraging youth to devlop skills related to the aerospace industry such as flight planning, drone piloting, design and development of rocket design and more; Belonging by learning to work as a team to design, build and fly rockets, drones and other projects; Independence by helping develop problem solving and critical thinking skills; and Generosity by allowing youth to help others develop their own skills related to the aerospace industry.  Contact your county extension office for more information (link).
