Coming June: 2024 STEM Challenge; Food for Thought


It's almost here! The 4‑H 2024 STEM Challenge, Food for Thought, was developed by 4‑H educators from LSU AgCenter, North Dakota State University, Penn State Extension, and University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

Food for Thought, perfect for youth ages 8–14, is a collection of three engaging activities that equip kids with fundamental knowledge of factors that contribute to food security, how people are impacted both globally and locally, and how youth can personally contribute to creating a more food secure community.

The three activities are:

  • Food Fighters — a collaborative board game where players earn tokens to build up their town's food security while learning about the food supply chain.

  • Chew on This — an entrepreneurial challenge that tasks teens with creating uses for food production waste to enhance food security.

  • Know to Grow — an engineering challenge with youth designing a greenhouse to overcome difficult growing environments contributing to the food supply.

Learn more about this upcoming STEM Challenge during our live informational webinar on Wednesday, May 22nd, at 3:00 PM ET.
