4-H Computing Connections

Project Lead and Affiliated Association

4-H Computing Connections develops informal computer science activities for elementary and middle school youth. Working with Extension, faculty and staff are creating a curriculum that addresses computer programming as well as fundamental computer science concepts. The project team trains 4-H volunteers and 4-H teens as teachers to run the activities, with the potential for statewide, and even nationwide 4-H club adoption of the curriculum.
