To learn more about the new club, interested youth and their families are invited to an information meeting on August 27 at 6:30 p.m. at the club’s meeting location.  This meeting will be the perfect time to ask questions, meet other interested youth, and get started in this brand new 4-H club.

4‑H has a long history of supporting robotics programs through 4‑H clubs, after-school programs, camps and curriculum. Through robotics, 4‑H’ers learn teamwork, problem-solving, critical thinking, engineering and design.

The 4-H Youth Development Program uses a learn-by-doing approach to enable youth to develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to become competent, caring, and contributing citizens of the world. This is accomplished by using the knowledge and resources of caring adults:

  • To provide information, educational programs for youth
  • To improve community partnerships and collaborations
  • To strengthen skills for adults working with youth through publications and training
  • To encourage responsibility, community awareness, and character development in youth
