Expand your understanding of technology as you explore the impact of computers and robots on society. You'll gain skills in engineering design, research and development while learning to analyze and interpret data.
What can you do?
In the technology project, you can:
- Upgrade a computer, build a website or write computer code.
- Identify computer components and operating systems.
- Learn to design, build and program a robot to do a task.
These are just some of the many ways you can participate in this project.
What does it mean to show at the fair?
For 4-H'ers, local and state showcase events (like the Minnesota State Fair) are not just fun events. They provide youth opportunities to exhibit the knowledge and skills they've gained throughout the year– and to continue their learning.
Contact your local 4-H office for technology (computer and robotics) project showcase opportunities near you.
