The 4-H Weather and Climate Youth Learning Lab is a hands-on learning experience for elementary school students (approximately grades 3-5). The goal of this project is to study the world of weather and climate, and specifically how they are influenced by natural processes and human activities.

After completing the hands-on experiments and activities, participants will have a better understanding of natural forces and human impacts.
