Get Ready For 4-H National Youth Science Day

El Centro, California (NAPSI) - This October, young people all across the nation will take  on geospatial technologies as they complete the 2013 National Science  Experiment 4-H Maps & Apps.

Designed by Colorado State University  Extension, the experiment will introduce youth to the importance of  geographic information systems (GIS) as they design and map their ideal park,  use mapping to solve community problems, and contribute data to the U.S.  Geological Survey’s (USGS) The National Map program.

4-H National Youth Science Day (NYSD) is the premier national rallying  event for year-round 4-H science programming that reaches millions of young  people each year. This exciting annual event brings together youth from all  around the nation to complete a single, innovative science, technology,  engineering or math (STEM) related activity in an effort to expose young  people to new science topics and, ultimately, drive STEM workforce  development. This year, 4-H National Youth Science Day will be held on  Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013.
