Date: April 14, 2012
Time: 1:00-5:00pm (Noon registration)
Location: MP6 Gym, Athletics Recreation Center on UIUC campus
For information on last year's event, see 3rd Annual 4-H Robotics Challenge.
Because of the growing attendance at the Annual 4-H State Robotics Competition, we would like to take advantage of the opportunity to expose these youth to a range of research advances in robotics and possible future college/career pathways.
Prior to the April 14, 2012 competition, and concurrent with the registration time for teams, several booths with hands-on activities and demos will be setup for participants to explore. These will include both campus/research and industry/workplace examples of robotics. In addition, there will be a crop science table of hands-on activities that connects to this year's "FarmBot" challenge.
This event is open to the public. Participants are invited to stay and observe the 4-H Robotics Competition that begins at 1:00pm.
