These activities make “doing science” lively and fun by including disciplines rarely associated with science, like song, dance, poetry, visual arts. In the model teen mentors lead younger kids so both teens and mentors grow and learn science.

The YES binder includes a series of activities that are interesting and offer younger students a chance to experiment with science content, such as snails, bubbles, kitchen science, worms, recycling and energy. The program is designed to support teenaged 4-H participants who serve as instructional leaders working with instructors to lead younger students through the activities.
