Virginia 4-H has two opportunities for its 4-H members to continue to learn and develop their knowledge and skills in Robotics!  


 Northern District 4-H will hold its spring Robotics competition on April 19 at Madison High School, Madison, Virginia.  This competition is open to enrolled 4-H members ages 9-18, with teams in three age divisions:


Junior—must be at least 9, but no older than 11 by September 30, 2008.

Intermediate—must be 12, but no older than 13 by September 30, 2008

Senior—must be 14 by September 30, 2008,, but no older than 19 by December 31, 2008


I have attached information about the competition. Please note that the contest will include a combined technical/teamwork interview and a robotics challenge using the 2007 FLL challenge set.  There will be no research project and report.


Also Attached is information about our upcoming pilot LEGO Robotics contest at 4-H Congress on June 24.  This competition is open to 4-H members who will be at least 14 by September 30, 2008, but no older than 19 by December 31, 2008.  4-H Teens wishing to compete need to contact their local 4-H agent in order to sign up for the competition and for 4-H Congress. Please encourage your teens to participate. This is a wonderful way to allow teen mentors and members who are aging out of the FLL program an opportunity to continue to learn and build their skills and encourage more teens to assist younger members!   Teams can consist of two or more people.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask.    Thanks !  Kathy Alstat



We are also looking for volunteers to serve as judges and helpers at these competition. Please contact Kathy Alstat at 434 985-5236 or email [log in to unmask]  if you are interested in assisting with either of these competition.
