4-H Robotics Challenge at the 2011 New York State FairFifteen teams of enthusiastic youth joined in to participate in the first ever, 4-H Robotics Challenge at the 2011 New York State Fair (August 25th- September 5th, 2011). Lots of excitement was generated by the Mars Exploration Rovers playing field. Children and parents passing by were drawn in by the LEGO robots and were surprised to learn that this was a 4-H project. Nancy Schaff, the new State 4-H Specialist for Science, Engineering, and Technology, ran the event. Schaff was truly impressed by the creativity, innovation, and teamwork demonstrated by the youth (ages 9-17) in robot design and programming.
