4H STEM Ambassadors Program (Rutgers)

4H STEM Ambassadors is a STEM-focused program encouraging youth to discover, explore and pursue science and research. Students spend a week at Rutgers, engaging in hands-on science activities, conducting their own projects, and exploring campus. Following the kickoff week, students volunteer with other 4H programs as ambassadors.

It includes campus tours, roundtable discussions with scientists and engineers, exposure to college life, physics demonstrations, leadership training, mentorship, and community service.

4H Youth Development is a program by Rutgers University.
