4-H Robotics

Robotics is an area of 4-H program growth right now.  Nationally, 4-H has launched  a new curriculum that has three phases - junk drawer robotics, virtual robotics and nxt platform robotics. National 4-H has a formal partnership with FIRST Robotics, which has helped build new partnering relationships within NYS.  FIRST teams exhibit in the 4-H Youth Building at the New York State Fair.     

Youth of all ages love the challenge of robotics. The NYS 4-H Foundation funded the purchase of LEGO Mindstorms NXT kits and workshops to kick start 4-H Robotics in New York. 


​​4-H Robotics Kit Lending Library

CCE Staff may borrow robotics equipment by completing a Kit Lending Request form. Use this one form to borrow WeDo, NXT, and EV3 kits. This request must be made by a 4-H Educator - not a volunteer or youth. After you've finished using the Robotics Kit, please fill out the 4​-H Robotics Kits Follow Up​ ​form.
