Ohio 4-H Cloverbot Challenge – For Cloverbuds

This year we’re going to space and the challenge happens on Mars! Cloverbuds will design a place to live on the Red Planet and create a model featuring their method of transportation. The 4-H Cloverbot Challenge will be virtual via Zoom on Monday, July 12 or Thursday, July 22 from 6:30-8 p.m. All teams must register by June 30 and new teams can order a kit to help them get started at a reduced rate thanks to support from the Ohio 4-H Foundation.

The Washington County Extension Office has two Lego kits available for loan to Cloverbud groups. These are available on a first come first serve basis. Contact Bruce if you would like to borrow a kit. Clubs can also order kits from the State 4-H Office.

Here are the complete Cloverbot details: 2021 Cloverbot Challenge
