The Ohio 4-H Cloverbot Challenge gives 4-H Cloverbuds the opportunity to work cooperatively in teams to problem-solve using STEM (science, engineering, technology and math) skills. A new theme is selected each year and teams research a topic, build a working model of their solution to the Challenge issue and create a poster to illustrate their findings. Cloverbuds, team advisors and families come to the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center in the spring, for the Challenge event. Teams present their models and findings to a team of reviewers, learn about other Cloverbuds’ projects, participate in age-appropriate STEM activities and are recognized at a closing celebration.
It’s time to register for the 2020 Ohio 4-H Cloverbot Challenge and this year Cloverbuds will be On the Move! Teams will explore transportation and how people and goods get where they are going. The challenge happens on June 13 at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau Center. Find registration details and information about ordering kits here. Thanks to the Ohio 4-H Foundation for their support of this program.
