Steuben County 4-H Robotics Challenge

  • Saturday, April 27, 2019, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM


The Steuben County 4-H Robotics Challenge - Engineering with Robotics event will be held April 27, 2019. The event is open to 4-H teams and school teams. 

It will be held at the Friends of Howard Community Building in Howard NY exit 35 off I-86

Sign in is at 11 a.m. Teams will have time to practice the day of the event for a period of time. We plan to be wrapped up by 4 p.m. at the latest. There will be a limit to the first 12 teams registered and the registration due date is April 12, 2019. There will be a $5 registration fee per team. There will be hotdogs, chips, drinks, and snacks available for sale by the Friends of Howard (cash only) or team members may bring a packed lunch. There is also a café nearby that is open until 2 p.m. Each team must include no less than 3 members. There will be a total of 10 challenges and a team interview. In order to encourage teams to attempt all the challenges, we will be doing things a little bit different. Each team will have 1 minute to set up and 4 minutes to complete as many challenges as they can within the 4 minutes. There will be 3 rounds. The team that scores in the most challenges out of the 10 challenges between the three 4-minute rounds will receive an extra 20-point bonus.
