4-H Robotics

Leslie County's 4-H Robotics program engages youth in critical math, science, and programming skills while empowering youth to develop decision-making and critical thinking skills through the engineering, design, and construction of their real and virtual robots.

As youth take part in activities from the National 4-H Curriculum, 4-H Robotics: Engineering for Today and Tomorrow, youth will:

--build 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 technology tools to enhance their learning;

--explore related careers; and

--apply the skills and knowledge they are developing to new challenges.
