The Importance of STEM Education

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 you development organization, they have a long history of leading innovative programs, and we are proud to support the work they are doing.


HughesNet® proudly partnered with the National 4-­H Council to support its GROWN program, aimed at building awareness and excitement around STEM activities among youth.

Through 4-­H GROWN, we encouraged alumni to contact the special people from their 4-­H days and "check-­in" with 4-H by tagging photos of their 4-­H friends and follow the conversation online using the hashtag #4HGROWN.

We are proud to say that more than 13,500 4-­H alumni checked in as part of the 4-­H GROWN program. And the great state of Delaware had the most alumni check in, winning a $10,000 "Innovation Incubator" science scholarship from HughesNet to help Delaware 4-­H'ers discover the magic of science.
