Embryology Resources

In Lancaster County, Nebraska, nearly 4,000 third graders in 175 classrooms at 53 schools incubate, candle and watch eggs hatch as part of the 4-H Embryology School Enrichment program. We have put together resources to help teachers set up incubators and make a simple brooding box for their classrooms.
