Pat Boyes




Pat Boyes is the Director of the Washington State University 4-H Youth Development Program. Building the capacity of youth to become citizen scientists is exciting fundamental work of the 4-H Program. From the earliest days, with its canning and corn clubs, 4-H championed the leading edge of scientific inquiry. And 112 years later, 4-H continues to lead in engaging young people with the excitement of science. Pat’s life mission continues to be to change the world and she chooses to make that change one young life at a time. Her commitment to 4-H found its roots in her own experiences as a 4-H’er in Washington State, with projects that ranged from dairy and horse to leadership and public speaking. Both her undergraduate (Animal Sciences/Reproductive Physiology/Nutrition) and graduate degree (Adult and Continuing Education) are from WSU. After teaching at a community college for two years, Pat joined the faculty of WSU first as a regional animal science specialist, later as a county director and for the past 21 years as the administrator for the statewide 4-H Program.

In October 2014, millions of young people across the nation—like you—will become scientists for the day during the seventh annual 4-H National Youth Science Day (NYSD). NYSD is the premiere national rallying event for 4-H Science year-round programming. It brings together thousands of youth, volunteers and educators from the nation’s 109 land-grant colleges and universities to simultaneously complete the National Science Experiment. The 2014 National Science Experiment, Rockets to the Rescue, provides the opportunity to explore firsthand how aerospace engineering can be used to solve real world challenges—such as food distribution in emergency situations—to make a positive impact in our world.
