Virtual Robotics Contest (May 30)
The State Robotics Event is a place for 4-H members to showcase their skills and learning in robotics. It also provides an opportunity for you and your leaders to network with others across the state who are interested in robotics and other STEM-related programs and activities. This will be a low stress event and we want everyone to have a successful and positive experience. Spectators need to register so they can get the Zoom link to watch.
