In South Dakota 4-H Robotics is about much more than the competition. It is about the development of youth through experiential learning. During the program youth are introduced to a variety of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts, but also develop a variety of life skills including, but not limited to: problem solving, communication, and teamwork.
The 4-H Robotics program engages both youth and adults through the development of local 4-H Robotics clubs. 4-H Professionals assist volunteers and members with developing a robotics program that fits their individual needs.
