Heads In, Hearts In: A Delivery Approach to Family Enrichment Programming – Science Activities

March 16, 2017 - Author: Michigan State University Extension

4-H's mission is to empower youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults. One goal to achieve that mission is to connect in-school learning with out-of-school-time opportunities that enhance learning.  That's precisely the focus of Heads In, Hearts In: A Delivery Approach to Family Enrichment 4-H Programming.  These resources encourage youth and families to use their minds (putting their "heads in") as a tool to expand their knowledge around variety of topic areas.  By creating a shared educational experience, youth and their families will work, grow and learn together, putting their "hearts in" to the process.

Heads In, Hearts In: A Delivery Approach to Family Enrichment Programming – Science Activities are designed to help Michigan State University Extension staff members to involve partners in facilitating a family enrichment program around the topic of science education. Family enrichment programming is an approach to education that involves youth and their families learning together as they focus on a topic. Be sure to view the Heads In, Hearts In: A Delivery Approach to Family Enrichment Programming – Staff Guide for tips for facilitating a family enrichment event.

Heads In, Hearts In Family Enrichment Programming is also available in a series of literacy activities! For information on bringing a family enrichment event to your community or school, contact your local MSU Extension office or Jodi Schulz at (989) 895-4026 or schulzj@anr.msu.edu.
