A Galactic Quest Awaits You! This is your opportunity for you to take part in the 2021 National 4-H STEM Challenge!
Designed by Clemson University, the 2021 4‑H STEM Challenge, Galactic Quest, focuses on the mysteries and adventures of space exploration.
Young people learn foundational STEM skills while they wrestle with the same questions as today’s top aerospace scientists and engineers! Activities can be done all at once or individually, making it great for classrooms, afterschool programs, clubs, parents and more.
Galactic Quest explores the history of humans in space, the technology and resources needed for missions, and the obstacles humans encounter in orbit. Activities explore important STEM topics ranging from physics and engineering to computer science and space agriculture.
This unplugged board game promotes teamwork as kids gather the resources needed to live and work in deep space.
In this offline activity, kids build a telescope and learn about physics and light and how telescopes have been used to explore space.
Kids work hands-on to engineer a mechanical arm that works to harvest crops in space.
In this computer science activity, kids learn about cyber security and decoding to stay safe from obstacles in orbit.
