SHOP PROJECT RESOURCES

In 4-H, members learn about topics that interest them. These are referred to as members “projects.” That could be anything from learning how to cook, build a robot, or care for the environment. One of the most important aspects of 4-H project work is that the 4-H member decides what they want to learn and do as they explore their project. This allows the project to be self-paced, and gives children important skills in setting and working toward their goals.


4-H makes learning fun! A variety of projects are offered through 4-H so members can pick the ones that most interest them. Or they can find other young people with the same interest and study that topic with the help of a volunteer that shares the same interests. 4-H projects help members to learn by doing. Projects offer hands-on ways to learn about a topic of interest.


Some projects have several levels. As members master the work at a beginning level, they are encouraged to advance to higher levels. 

CROPS

Take a trip anywhere across Illinois and you'll see thousands of acres of corn, soybeans, and small grains. This project prepares you for what it takes to feed the world. Test germination rates, study seed selection and seasonal pests, and identify plant diseases and weeds.

HORTICULTURE

Horticulture is the science of growing living things, such as fruits, flowers, vegetables, and ornamental plants. There are two divisions: Flowers and Vegetables.

 

PLANT & SOIL SCIENCE

It's more than just dirt. Soil gives us life and food. Find out about soil, insects, and how they affect the crops we grow and the food we eat.
