Cornell Cooperative Extension of Herkimer County 4-H members Isabella Battisti, Laura Culver and Anna Culver earned a blue ribbon on Sept. 1 at the 2013 New York State 4-H Robotics Challenge at the New York State Fair.
The Herkimer robotics team, coached by 4-H volunteer Andy Culver, worked together to solve several farm-related challenges by programming a robot to complete the tasks.
The 2013 4-H Robotics Challenge tasks were designed to encourage youth to learn more about the Cornell University Animal Science Department and how they connect youth through 4-H.
To be successful, youth needed to work as a team using problem-solving skills since there was no one right way to solve a task. For more about this event or other 4-H programs, call Cornell Cooperative Extension in Herkimer County at 866-7920 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
