Sharing Experience, Shaping Lives

The 4–H STEM Docent program provides specialized trainings and coordinates teams of volunteers, known as STEM Docents, and K-12 educators so they are highly successful in engaging and educating New Hampshire K-12 youth in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) projects. This program aligns with national recommendations to actively engage learners in doing science to enhance their understanding of the scientific concepts and the process of conducting science.  This work is in partnership with the Joan and James Leitzel Center for Mathematics, Science, and Engineering Education.
