Science education can be improved by immersing learners in the process of using scientific knowledge to "do" science at their 4-H club or school outdoor learning center. In Oregon school-based 4-H programs, the 4-H Science Inquiry in Action model assists volunteers and teachers in moving away from "cookbook experiments" toward learner-centered experiential programs. Using the 4-H Inquiry in Action model, 4-H Agents, leaders, and schoolteachers can make any pre-scripted activity more engaging for youth learners.
