Grow your STEM leadership practice: 2023 NYS 4-H ACRES - registration closing March 15

"...being able to come together with people that are in the same boat and practice using resources...I get so many emails of fabulous resources but it's a whole other thing when someone is walking you through it...and then we come back and we troubleshoot together and share success." participant describing their ACRES experience.


You're invited to join this year's NYS 4-H ACRES STEM facilitation skills coaching series. These are virtual professional development experiences (Zoom connection information will be sent after you sign up).


Note: participation in either Asking Purposeful Questions or Ready, Set, STEM is a prerequisite for these series.


Facilitating Science Practices

How can we make sure that our ‘hands on’ science experiences for youth are also ‘minds on?’ In this module, participants learn how to support youth as they engage in science practices to learn science ideas, including planning and conducting investigations around testable questions. They’ll talk about the similarities and differences of questioning in science versus questioning in engineering contexts. We’ll develop science practices using examples from 4-H environmental science projects, though these practices apply to all science investigation learning experiences.

This series will be offered:

  • Wednesdays, 10 AM – 12 PM March 22, April 19, and May 3 (Cohort Code NY212SP)

To sign up, first enroll in ACRES. Once you are logged in, sign up for this opportunity using the Cohort Code to let us know which series you'd like to join. Please sign up by March 15.


Facilitating Engineering Practices

Engineering has become a staple of STEM programming for youth. How can we confidently bring engineering into our programming and support youth as they engage in problem solving? In this module, participants gain first-hand experience with engineering by solving a design problem. They examine the components of the engineering design process and discuss ways to model the process with youth. We’ll develop engineering practices using examples from 4-H robotics projects, though these practices apply to all engineering design learning experiences.

This series will be offered:

  • Thursdays, 10 AM – 12 PM March 23, April 20, and May 4 (Cohort Code NY213EP)

To sign up, first enroll in ACRES. Once you are logged in, sign up for this opportunity using the Cohort Code to let us know which series you'd like to join. Please sign up by March 15.
