About 4-H Outreach

Boulder County 4-H offers in-school opportunities that combine 4-H curriculum with school standards for a low cost to cover supplies.


Embryology is a fun, rewarding and educational project! The study of embryos is a great way to observe the development of life in just three short weeks by hatching chickens right in your classroom. The project provides numerous opportunities for young children to learn the value of life through their observations, as well as information about chickens, eggs and embryonic development. We are limited on incubators, so they are rented on a first come, first serve basis.
