The Alabama 4-H Science School’s mission is to excite our students about the outdoors, and be proud to live in Alabama. The Science School annually teaches outdoor and adventure-based classes to nearly 4,500 students of all ages from across the state… and beyond. With a highly qualified and experienced educational staff, it operates winter, spring, summer or fall. All of the science classes are directly aligned with the Alabama Course of Study standards and classes are updated frequently to meet the ever changing world of science and discovery.
The Science School is home to nearly 100 educational animals, and through their story, the animals teach students about their adaptations, abilities and how students can be better stewards. Every class or activity takes a hands-on approach to inspire learning, leadership and curiosity.
“The Alabama 4-H Science School builds curiosity in our youth through hands-on experiential based learning of the 21st century. Whether the activity is dissecting a fish, ascending a climbing wall, touching a turtle, leading a team through a challenge course, paddling a canoe or testing water quality in a river or stream, the Alabama 4-H Science School encourages discovery of the wonders of the natural world, as well as one’s personal self and abilities,”said Luci Davis, assistant manager for programs and education, Alabama 4-H Youth Development Center in Shelby County.
4-H Give to Grow Campaign
Alabama 4-H’s Give to Grow campaign allows you to support 4-H and help it reach more young people.
Funding from county, federal and state sources declining and tax dollars only going so far. The Alabama 4-H program relies on support from youth, families, Extension specialists, agents, volunteers, partners and donors to succeed.
Last year, Alabama 4-H worked with more than 138,000 youth. Giving to 4-H enriches young lives through designated support of a project area, event, scholarship or improved facilities.
