Hello and welcome to 4-H Robotics! Robots are everywhere in everyday life. Learn to design, build, and program robots in an exciting and hands-on project. Robots make our lives more simple. They help us grow our food. They help us build our cars. They help us do tasks. Robots do jobs which are dirty, dangerous, and disgusting, but you won't hear them complain. Once programmed, they do the work that needs to be done.
