girl with robotYouth who are interested in science and technology would be a perfect fit for a robotics project! Learn the hands on skills needed to design and build robots, while exploring the science behind them.

The 4-H Robotics Curriculum is comprised of three tracks; each is designed to meet the diverse requirements of 4-H clubs, after-school programs, individual youth and school enrichment activities. The curriculum was developed for all levels of expertise: from beginning to advanced.

Objectives

  • Build an understanding of basic science concepts related to robotics
  • Apply the processes of scientific inquiry and engineering design
  • Build skills in science, engineering and technology
  • Use the tools of technology to enhance their learning
  • Explore related careers in these fields
  • Apply the skills and knowledge they are developing to new challenges.
