Embryology is a 4-H School Enrichment Project supported by University of Nebraska Cooperative Extension in Lancaster County.

Embryology teaches students about science and respect for life. Students hatch chicks in the classroom and witness the exciting miracle of life. Students take the responsibilities of caring for the fertilized eggs and then the chicks after they have hatched. Approximately 3,500 children in Lancaster County participate in Embryology each year.

Now you can take part in this interactive Embryology program with your family or classroom on-line. Start watching EGG Cam today HERE
