Acknowledgements

A special thank you to Eddie Locklear, Ed.D. and Ron Drum of National 4-H Council for all of their support throughout the project and to Jill Walahoski of the University of Nebraska for assistance with the project design.

This project was made possible through the generous support of the Noyce Foundation. Since 2006, the Noyce Foundation has been a sponsor of the 4-H Science Program, preparing 1 million young people to excel in science, engineering and technology - exposing them to a multitude of potential careers. Through new 4-H Science clubs, camps, and afterschool programs; innovative curriculum; and training for 3,500 4-H professionals and 540,000 volunteers, the Noyce Foundation is helping 4-H build a pipeline of our nation's future scientists and engineers.
