Local Interest

Learn from your living room with Nebraska 4-H! Join us each Tuesday and Thursday afternoon at 2pm CT/1pm MT to complete an activity from the comfort of your own home. Living Room Learning is targeted toward youth in grades 3-5 (along with their parents/caretakers!) and will provide a hands-on virtually guided activity where youth will learn more about healthy living, science, technology, and more! Each session, led by Nebraska Extension faculty/staff from across the state, will last approximately 30 minutes in length and will focus on a new activity that can be completed with materials found at home. Youth do not need to be current 4-H members to participate; Living Room Learning is a FREE program brought to you by Nebraska 4-H Youth Development.

What are School Education Programs?

These programs are learning experiences offered to students during school hours by local 4-H educators. These programs are designed to enhance the subject matter being studied in the classroom, provide hands-on education, introduce a new topic to students, or spark a new interest!

School Education Programs are a great way to connect and collaborate with your local Extension office and achieve your classroom’s educational goals. Our current programs focus on Career Development, STEM, Healthy Lifestyles, Personal Development and Agricultural Literacy and Environment.
