National Youth Science Day (NYSD) provides access and opportunity for kids to learn about STEM topics (science, technology, engineering and math) by participating in a hands-on STEM challenge. For the past 11 years, 4‑H has developed hands-on challenges that shows kids how STEM skills can be applied to the world around them.
