The Steuben County 4-H Program is currently using EV3s and tablets that were purchased through various grants. Steuben County had 2 teams participate in the 2018 New York State Fair Robotics Challenge on August 26. In Part 1 youth were challenged to use their robots to accomplish challenge tasks to help a community respond to a natural disaster recovery. To be successful youth needed to work as a team, use problem-solving skills (there is no one right way to solve the tasks) and have fun. This challenge gave participants the opportunity to work with others to build and program a robot and demonstrate what they have learned in a friendly competitive event. Teams participated in a group interview with the judges. During this part of the challenge, teams shared their knowledge of understanding natural disaster concepts and effectiveness of natural disaster recovery solutions. Participants were asked to reflect on their mechanical and program designs and the team’s strategies. They were also evaluated on their presentation skills. The NYS 4-H Robotics Challenge gives youth the opportunity to work with others to build and program a robot and demonstrate what they have learned in a friendly competitive event.
