This annual event seeks to spark an early youth interest in science and future science careers, and to reclaim the nation's position of lead- ership in scientific ex- ploration. As part of 4-H NYSD, youth will participate in Wired for Wind: the 2011 National Science Experiment. Designed by the University of Nebraska - Lincoln Extension and working in partnership with KidW'md, the 2011 National Sci- ence Experiment will demon- strate how young people can implement alternatives to tradi- tional energy production and have a positive impact on their communities and ecosystems. In Hidalgo, Wired for Wind participants will enhance their engineering skills by designing, building and testing two differ- ent wind turbine models. The National Science Experiment will also help Hidlago County Youth relate their scientific ex- periences back to their own fives as they determine the best loca- tion for a wind farm in Hidalgo County by calculaffng wind power and studying wind data and maps. "Our nation is falling be- hind other countries in the fields of science, technology, engineer- ing and math," John R. Allen, Hidalgo County 4-H Director. "Participation in 4-H NYSD and other year:round 4-H science pro- gramming offers youth and adults the opportunity to engage in sci- entific exploration and work to- gether to build the next genera- tion of our nation's scientists, engineers and mathematicians." To combat a national short- age of young people pursuing science college majors and occu- pations, and to enhance the nation's contribution to the sci- ences, 4-H National Youth Sci- ence Day demonstrates that sci- ence, engineenng, math and tech- nology are fun and attainable options for college degrees and future careers. Currently, more than five million young people across the nation participate in 4- H science, engineering, technol- ogy and applied math year-long programming. Through the One Million New Scientists, One Mil- lion New Ideas campaign, 4-H is working toward a bold goal to engage one million new young people ,in science, engineering, technology and applied math prggrams by the year 2013. Research has shownthat par- ticipation in 4-H programs like 4-H NYSD makes a positive dif- ference in the lives of youth. Youth development scholar, Dr. Richard Lerner, works with re- searchers at the Institute for Ap- plied Research in Youth Devel- opment at Tufts University to conduct The 4-H Study of Posi- tive Youth Development. The lon- gitudinal study has found that, when compared to other youth, young people involved in 4-H are: Two times more likely to get better grades in school; Two times more likely to plan to go to coNege; Nearly three times more likely to participate in science, engineering, or computer tech- nology programs, and, Three times more likely to make positive contributions to SEPTIC TANK SERVICES [] Septic Tank Installation [] Septic Tank Pumping & Inspections [] Portable Toilet Rentals & Service [] Septic Tank Treatment Products Elbr0cl00 Water Systems, LLC BONDED & INSURED 575-548.2429 NM LIC. #81570-MS03 575-557-2291 AZ LIC. #t94466-K-80  Carpet  Commercial  Stucco Tile t Residential  Cement Work  Roofing *t Block Work Fences IConstruttion t'00nil00ers o[ 004merita I "Let us build your home, " l Jose Retana Office 575.542-3529 320 W.

Overall, the study found that the advantages of 4-H participa- tion include higher educational achievement and higher motiva- tion for future education. As part of the Cooperative Extension System of the United States Department of Agriculture and implemented by the nation's 111 land-grant colleges and uni- versifies, 4-H has been educating youth in the sciences for more than 100 years. In fact, the land- grant colleges and universities have been deeply involved in en- vironmental research for some time and will showcase their work to inspire youth around the na- tion on 4-H National Youth Sci- ence Day. 4-H'S robust, university re- search-based science curriculum, combined with new initiatives like 4-H National Youth Science Day, will arm young people with the necessary technical skills to help Ameiica maintain its com- petitive edge in the global mar- ketplace.
