The 4-H Electric Program is an informal hands-on youth program conducted by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service and its professional 4-H agents and volunteer adult leaders located in all 100 counties and the Cherokee Reservation. Youth learn about the fundamentals of electricity, renewable energy technologies, and energy conservation. Activities include learning how to solder, learning the difference between series and parallel circuits, and assembling can lamps. Youth learn many life skills while participating in this program, but also generate more enthusiasm for science and technology.
