4-H Gateway Academies

4-H Gateway Academies are designed to introduce middle school students to the fundamentals of science, technology, engineering, and math in a fun and exciting environment.

In Wisconsin, 4-H Gateway Academies are fully funded one week day camps for middle school students which include a hands-on project based curriculum, team building, meals, and field trips. The teachers have been trained in Project Lead The Way and use their skills and knowledge to engage middle school youth in a variety of activities. 4-H staff in the counties contribute team building activities and logistical assistance to the camp.

The 4-H Gateway Academy is a joint venture of 4-H Youth Development, UW-Extension, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) Education Foundation, the Kern Family Foundation and local school districts.
