2012: 4-H Eco-Bot Challenge

4-H Eco-Bot Challenge

With the 2012 National Science Experiment, 4-H Eco-Bot Challenge, youth enhance their engineering skills by learning to think like a robotics engineer, assembling their own robots, also known as Eco-bots, and control surfaces in order to manage an environmental clean-up. Youth then test the interaction between the Eco-Bot’s environmental engineering design features and various control surface configurations to determine the most effective environmental clean-up solution for a simulated toxic spill.
