The world is becoming more technology based by the minute and our youth are gearing up for this in 4-H by participating in the 4-H Robotics Program. This innovative program lets youth explore, design, build, and program their very own robots. These robots come in various shapes and sizes and can perform a number of tasks.
Currently the 4-H program is using the LEGO WeDo and LEGO Mindstorm NXT platforms. WeDo is geared for youth 7-11 years old and the Mindstorms are targeted for youth 10 and older, with a few exceptions for those advanced younger youth who are ready for a challenge.
We are in search of interested adults and parents to help lead youth in this journey. You don't have to be a "techy" to help out. We look forward to seeing all you "big kids" who still like to play with toys to come forward and get a chance to play, teach and learn.
YES! We are looking for any interested adults and parents. Anyone who love LEGOs, kids, FUN and can help youth as coaches, mentors, supports, or just to be an extra hand.
We are hoping to have kids as young as 5 join our program. Some of the younger kids may need a little more help. Clubs will have children in varieing ages, but we hope to group them with similar age groups if possible.
No. We have people from other counties as well as Delaware and Virginia in our program. We are hoping to set up 4-H robotics clubs in all the counties on the Eastern Shore.
The WeDo Robotics Kits are very portable and the 4-H Program would like to bring them to your child's school, girl scout, boy scout or any other organization who would like to work with us! Contact us to find out how we can bring WeDo's to You!
