4H RoboKids Amaze at Marion County Fair
Jul 12, 2009
The Marion County Fair hosted a 4H RoboKids maze competition. The RoboKids is a new 4H program that is designed to offer grades 3-5 a fun way to learn about robotics, engineering and science. RoboKids provides a great learning opportunity for automation and how it is increasing productivity across the globe.
The spectators at this Marion County Fair event didn’t come to see cows or chickens. They came to see robots.
On Wednesday, June 24th, the Marion County Fair hosted the second 4H RoboKids maze competition. This year there were more contestants, a larger audience, and a harder, agriculturally-themed robot maze.
RoboKids is a new 4H program designed to give kids in grades 3 – 5 a fun way to explore robotics, engineering and science. At this particular competition, each RoboKids team of two had a chance to navigate their Lego robot through the floor maze. The AgBot maze also included farm chores, requiring the robots to carry out specific tasks.
The Robots.com-sponsored Heritage Elementary RoboKids Club made it to the competition in full force, arrayed in bright tie-dye T‑shirts. Their leader, Sue Itterly, is a fourth grade teacher at Heritage. In April, seven teams from the Heritage Elementary RoboKids Club dominated at the National Robotics Challenge, winning Gold, Silver, and Bronze metals.
