Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts:  mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity.  This project fosters mastery by helping youth develop skills in design and assembly of robotic components, logical and process thinking in programming and applying skills involved in the Engineering Design Process; Belonging by learning to work as a team to determine and learn from other members strengths to cooperatively solve problems and create new products; Independence by helping develop problem solving and critical thinking skills; and Generosity by allowing youth to help others develop their own skills related to robotics, mechanization and programming.  Contact your county extension office for more information (link).
