Our mission as a 4-H robotics team is to promote engineering, leadership, and community involvement throughout the Northwest Corner. We plan to involve the entire team in bettering the community by promoting environmentally aware thoughts and actions.
Our team began with four teenagers who were curious about FIRST Robotics. We wanted to have our own robotics team in order to learn about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The four of us were from different schools, creating a problem. We were not able to be affiliated with a school team, so we decided that it was in our best interest to start a new 4-H robotics team in the Northwest Corner. Once we began our team, we began to recruit new members and made ourselves well known among Litchfield County 4-H. We began our summer at the Litchfield County 4-H Fair. Our mentor team, the Litchbots, allowed us the use of one of their robots from a past year in order to drive it around outside to draw some attention from passing people. Currently we are on our way to the 2014 Robotics season. This year we have more members, a larger understanding of FIRST®, and a better outlook on the teams future. Soon we will be on our way to our strongest year yet.
Our group is looking for sponsors to help us get the tools and equipment we need. What we learn here does not just benefit us now, but in our future careers. Your sponsorship would mean a lot for our group. So help a kid learn robotics today!
