Introducing the 2018 NYSD Experiment: “Code Your World.”

4-H National Youth Science Day (NYSD) is the world’s largest youth-led science experiment. This October, 4‑H and Google will launch an exciting National Youth Science Day challenge, Code Your World, inviting kids to get involved in computer science (CS) through hands-on doing. The national NYSD celebration kicks off October 1, and coding events can take place all throughout October.

NYSD is an exciting, interactive learning experience that engages thousands of youth across the country in conducting the National Science Experiment. Code Your World is a four-part challenge that teaches kids ages 8-14 to apply CS to the world around them through hands-on activities. Developed by Google and West Virginia University Extension Service, it includes a computer-based activity on Google’s CS First platform and three unplugged activities that bring coding to life through games and interaction. Learn more details by visiting 4-H National Youth Science Day.
