The 2021 Cloverbot Challenge will help Cloverbuds imagine how could they live on a newly established colony on the planet Mars. They will explore what a colony might that look like, where to live and how they could move from place to place.
The 4-H Cloverbot Challenge is a statewide event designed just for our youngest 4-H’ers. Teams will work together to research a topic, build a model out of interlocking bricks and create a poster highlighting their experience. Teams will present and share virtually via Zoom either Monday, July 12 or Thursday, July 22.
Cloverbud teams will learn about the planet Mars and potential modes of transportation. Teams will also learn more about the challenge by answering these questions:
- What are similarities and differences between Earth and Mars?
- What might your colony look like on Mars?
- What kinds of transportation do you use on Earth?
- How would transportation you use on Mars be different or similar to what we use on Earth?
- What jobs are associated with space travel?
- How might you stay safe when using transportation on Mars?
- How does the environment on Mars impact transportation?
Teams may have a minimum of two members, but no more than eight, and are coached by an adult team leader. Details and registration information can be found at https://ohio4h.org/families/cloverbuds/cloverbot-challenge
