Nearly 1,000 seventh grade students in the Cache County School District will have the opportunity to be Aggies for a day at Utah State University Extension 4-H Healthy Living field trips held on the USU campus March 15, 17, and April 12 and 14. The field trips provide an opportunity for students to learn about nutrition, food science, gardening, agriculture careers and STEM programs. Activities include paper towel gardening, fitness games, presentations in the insect and soils diagnostic labs and learning to make healthy snacks.
According to Stacey MacArthur, USU Extension state 4-H volunteer specialist, students will be able to connect interest in healthy living and agricultural science to college majors and future careers.
Funding for the program is provided by the Walmart Foundation and the National 4-H Council.
