4-H Makerspace After-school Programs

4-H Makerspace After-school programs are remote hands-on maker education programs aimed at youth age 10-17. We aim to build a thriving youth community focused on making and entrepreneurship. Participating youth develop enthusiasm for emergent technology, tinkering, discovery, creative design, and a mind for DIY projects. Youth are invited to enroll in ongoing sequential programs exploring tools and projects in the makerspace. Scholarships available to those who qualify.
