There’s still time for youth aged 8-18 (as of Jan. 1) interested in learning how to build and program a robot to enroll in the Steuben County 4-H Robotics Program.
The program uses a Lego Mindstorms EV3, teamwork and problem-solving skills to solve various tasks while having fun. It also builds life skills such as goal setting, problem-solving, decision making, self-esteem, communication, cooperation, and social skills.
Classes will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. Jan. 21, Feb. 4 and 18, Mar. 4 and 18, Apr.1 and 15. at the Howard Community Building, Hopkins Road, Howard.
The youth also may participate in a 4-H robotics challenge on Apr. 27 at the Howard Community Building and during the 4-H Robotics Challenge at the New York State Fair.
Youth who are not currently Steuben County 4-H members may join the robotics program as an independent 4-H member by paying the $10 enrollment fee. Members also must fill out enrollment, code of conduct, permission/medical release and acknowledgment of risk forms located at http://putknowledgetowork.org/4-h-youth
