4-H Science On the Move is a statewide initiative from South Carolina’s Coalition for Mathematics and Science and South Carolina 4-H. The initiative works with schools, afterschool programs, county 4-H clubs, and other youth organizations to provide education resources that are designed to increase students’ interest in and exposure to STEM- Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Through collaborating with local, statewide, and national education efforts, 4-H Science on the Move helps maximize community efforts to help students become the prepared workforce that South Carolina needs to interest new businesses and encourage economic growth.
Why is it important?
