Hands-on learning was at the center of A.B. Graham’s first boys’ and girls’ agricultural club in Springfield, Ohio, in 1902. Youngsters planted seeds in experimental plots, tested the soil, and identified weeds and insects. They studied scientific theory and presented findings to their peers. Today, nearly 290,000 young Ohioans participate in 4-H clubs; camps; and school-enrichment, after-school, and special-interest programs. All are provided with ample opportunities for experiential learning. At the same time, by addressing real-world challenges, The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences prepares students to successfully progress into worthwhile careers.
