2018 Illinois 4-H Robotics Challenge: Envirobot
“If you want to learn about the health of a population, look at the air they breathe, the water they drink, and the places where they live."
– Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, in the Fifth Century B.C.
This year’s challenge revolves around one of the most important issues our world faces, environmental health. With major bodies like the World Health Organization estimating that over 12 million deaths are attributable to unhealthy environments annually, it is important that we begin to tackle this issue today for the sake of our future. As a result, each task this year will revolve around EH, and will help illuminate the challenges we face in dealing with EH related issues. For more information on Environmental Health related issues, check out the National Environmental Health Association website at https://www.neha.org/, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention site at https://www.cdc.gov/nceh, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences website at https://www.niehs.nih.gov/health/topics/index.cfm, as well as The World Health Organization site at www.who.int/phe/en/, and the Environmental Health Association site at https://www.epa.gov/.
This year’s Competition will take place at the Orr Building on the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield, IL on Saturday April, 21 2018. Team registration will open the first week of February.
This year, the competition will consist of three parts including a new Project Judging Section.
