On Wednesday, October 6, 2010, the third annual 4-H National Youth Science Day, will bring together hundreds of thousands of youth around the nation to complete a single science experiment. This year, the National Science Experiment, 4-H2O, focuses on water quality and climate change – two critical issues facing our global community today.
In anticipation of 4-H National Youth Science Day, you can now pre-order a 4-H2O experiment kit with all the necessary materials to complete the first two tiers of the experiment! Kit includes enough materials for 15 youth and one facilitator to participate.

Each kit includes:
• One experiment facilitator’s guide
• Five youth workbooks
• A bottle of Bromothymol Blue solution
• Plastic cups and straws
• An eyedropper
• A roll of plastic wrap
• Antacid tablets
• Sealable plastic bags

The 4-H National Youth Science Day (NYSD) experiment kit can be purchased for $22 on the National 4-H Mall. Additional printed copies of the facilitator guide and youth workbooks are also available for sale for $1 each. Kits will begin shipping on August 2, 2010.

At 4-H.org/NYSD you can continue your water quality exploration with new updates including:
