About this Program Area

Projects in the Kentucky 4‑H SET program equip young people with the skills they need to succeed in life through a variety of hands-on learning opportunities. Project areas such as Aerospace, Agriscience, Computer Science, Electricity and Energy, Petroleum Power, Robotics, and the National 4-H STEM Challenge, help young people to develop through building relationships with other youth who share their spark for learning and doing through STEM. Youth will be challenged to expand their knowledge and be open to discovering new ideas and concepts while setting and managing goals for themselves and their project outcomes.

Through the Kentucky 4-H SET program, youth will have opportunities to connect to others with similar interests (sparks).  Youth will learn to contribute their own ideas and develop the ability to listen to the ideas of others. Through this, youth utilize individual and group problem-solving and decision-making skills for engagement in their community through those connections.
