Whether it's your community, home, family car, or your iPod, energy makes things happen. You will likely experience dramatic changes related to energy during your lifetime. So, understanding the fundamental concepts of energy is important. You will gain knowledge and skills to understand energy development and use, and the impact on economics and the environment which could lead to future careers. 4-H is developing projects to help youth understand the science and technology of energy and energy transformations.
