4-H Robotics

student programming a Lego Roboti

We offer three different levels of Robotics courses for students with varying levels of prior experience and interest. Introduction to Robotics is offered in the Fall and Spring for students in 4th-5th grade. Exploring Robotics is a year long program for students in 6th-12th grade and Advanced Robotics is a year long program for students in 6th-12th grade. Please read below for a detailed description on the classes to find the right place for your student! Class fee and rental fee vary based on meeting platform.

Using a “block based” programming language, this class provides an overview of the foundational concepts of computer programming and robotics. During each class, youth will have hands-on opportunities to program robots. This class is offered for youth in grades 4-5 in the Fall term and in the Spring term. Both the Fall and Spring classes will cover the same content, so participants should pick the term that best suits their schedule.
 

For youth who are new to computer programming and robotics, this class provides a strong foundation in programming and robotics. The Exploring Robotics class offers youth hands-on opportunities to build, program and test robots using Lego Mindstorms EV3 kits during each class meeting. This class is offered for youth in grades 6 and up. Meets October-April. Students must join at the beginning of the year, please join the “interest list” on the registration form to hear about other opportunities.

For youth who have completed an introductory robotics class that covers the basics of navigation and sensors, Advanced Robotics covers intermediate and advanced concepts of computer programming and robotics. During each class, participants will have the opportunity to custom build, program and test robots using Lego Mindstorms EV3 kits. This class is offered for youth in grades 6th and up. Meets October-April. Students must join at the beginning of the year, please join the “interest list” on the registration form to hear about other opportunities.
