Tri River Area CSU Extension - To provide information, education and to encourage the application of research-based knowledge to the communities of Delta, Mesa, Montrose, and Ouray Counties.

TRA 4-H STEM and K12

   The 4-H School Enrichment and Outreach projects are designed to enhance classroom education with experience-based learning—”Learn By Doing”.

Classroom-ready projects teach life skills as well as specific subject matter with the help of 4-H Curriculum.

We have a variety of different topics and curriculum we can cover or provide to you! Many of our programs are aligned to CDOE Standards for easy classroom or after school implementation.

WSTEM program helps at Pomona Elementary Schoole are happy to be able to provide all of our programs at a low cost or free to our communities! Any cost that is associated with programs is for supplies.

Please take a look at the list of activities that can be shared or available kits for checkout here in the Tri-River Area.
