Robotics Competition

Individuals and teams bring pre-built and programmed robots to complete the challenge course. Any robotic platform may be used to compete in the 4-H Robotic Competition.

Space and electricity will be available for participants who want to make modifications to their robot or programs. Practice runs may be scheduled as time allows. 

Individuals and teams of youth use robots to complete one of three different challenge courses:

  • Entry Level (Level 1)
  • Intermediate (Level 2)
  • Advanced (Level 3) 

Pre-qualification is not required and participants are not required to be enrolled in a 4-H robotics project in order to participate. 

Drop-in Robotics Activities 10:00am to 2:00pm

Walk-in robotics participants are welcome! There will be an inventory of Scribbler 2 robots and training available for the Entry Level Course.  We want to make robots available so many people can be successful.

  • Scribbler 2 robots and adult leaders will be available to help youth learn how to program a robot to complete the Entry Level challenge.

  • VEX robots will be available for youth to use with remote controls

You can also bring your own robots or robotic kit and collaborate with other 4-H members during the event. Design, build, and program robots to test on the 2018 challenge courses. 

You can network with 4-H members and leaders from all over California who are using robotics as part of their county 4-H programs.
