Congratulations to Thaddeus Hughes, the winner of the 2016 National 4-H Youth in Action STEM Award, sponsored by HughesNet.
4-Hers highlight the need for more STEM education and the success of 4-H programs in helping America's youth prepare for STEM careers.
Local 4-Hers experience quadcopters, find new uses for electric toothbrush motors, create light-up and fashionable wrist bands through sew-able circuitry, and more!
Congratulations to Colleen Murray from 4-H Delaware, our featured 4-Her for the month of May.
Our STEM Leader of the month is Debbie McDonald, West Virginia's State 4-H Program Leader!
HughesNet is pleased to have been named, in partnership with 4-H, as a finalist for a Cause Marketing Halo Award in the Best Education Campaign Category.
What did you do this summer? Check our video to see what 4-Hers from New York, Georgia, West Virginia, and Delaware learned when HughesNet held a STEM day at their summer camps. HughesNet is proud to partner with 4-H to promote STEM education, creating tomorrow’s leaders today.
Looking for exciting ways to get youth involved in STEM? Check out National 4-H Council's robotics curriculum!
Mentors play a crucial role in the successful development of children and young adults. Hear from Jen Robertson of 4-H West Virginia on how STEM camps are positively affecting youth!
For the third year in a row, HughesNet and 4-H teamed up to bring local 4-Hers to Hughes headquarters during National Engineers Week as part of our ongoing effort to inspire the next generation of scientists.
The Digital Observation Technology Skills (DOTS) program is an innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) program designed to utilize mobile digital technologies in experiential environmental education.
Meet Doug Crouse from Delaware as he discusses the importance of STEM education for youth!
Michael Apodaca from Dallas County 4-H is a promising 4-Her with STEM talent, pursuing photography and promoting technology across the state.
HughesNet is a proud sponsor of 4-H National Youth Science Day, the world’s largest youth-led science experiment. On October 7, 2015, thousands of youth participated in Motion Commotion to learn about physics, speed, and safety!
During the annual American Business Awards competition—the nation's premier business awards program—a panel of 200 executives awarded Hughes with the gold ‘Stevie®’ award for its partnership with National 4-H Council.
Access to quality science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education shouldn’t be determined by where you live. Kids all across the U.S. should be exposed to STEM. Not only is it important for the development of our youth, but it’s also important for our country’s future.
Our passion towards STEM education is the core driver of our initiatives with 4-H. As the nation’s premier youth development organization, they have a long history of leading innovative programs, and we are proud to support the work they are doing.
Together, our organizations serve small, local rural and exurban communities across America. We are passionate about STEM education, building future leaders, and the role they will play in advancing our country’s competitiveness in the global economy. That’s what makes us natural partners in inspiring our next generation of scientists.
We’re investing at the local and regional levels to introduce youth to STEM education and to get them involved in science activities. From county science events to HughesNet “Tech Takeover Days” at 4-H camps, we’re motivating 4-H kids, families, and alumni to support 4-H and their science education programs.
