SCIENCE, ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY (4-H SET)
Science, Engineering and Technology are being promoted throughout the nation this year.
The College of Engineering Outreach, University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign has a wonderful website for youth to learn about exciting on-campus robotics competitions and other learning experiences. You will find fun hands on activities, engineering links to groups who work with youth on activities, women in engineering plus much more.
Take some time today to check it out.
First Lego League is another competition opportunity for youth. They have an international website.
This site has activities which you can create along with activities on line with Sound.
These appear to be aimed at younger children, but I am told the program is very “math-oriented for old youth.”
McHenry County Blog wrote about the Focus on NASA robotics program Tuesday.
