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 event fosters mastery by exposing youth to  the science and technological issues related to field of biotechnology and providing youth with an experiential learning opportunity that promotes development observation, critical thinking and problem solving; Belonging by teaching youth to work in a group setting to analyze and report data and results; Independence by teaching youth to observe situations and develop conclusions based on those observations; and Generosity by allowing them to teach others what they have learned through these processes.  Contact your county extension office for more information (link).
