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. A new Smith-Lever grant is supporting an extension of those efforts by providing additional materials to borrow and workshops. For more information contact your local Cornell Cooperative Extension office or

If you would like to join the NYS 4-H Robotics Wiggio group please contact

CCE Staff may borrow robotics equipment by completing a loan request form: (request must be made by a 4-H Educator - not a volunteer or youth)
