Robotics and GPS/GIS in 4-H: Workplace Skills for the 21st Century


This program was developed to engage youth with robotics, and spatial technologies relevant to agriculture and natural resources. Participants are expected to follow the curriculum developed while being involved in an informal  education experience program such as summer camp and/or afterschool 4H club meeting. The program addresses different aspects of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) areas of education. While focusing on fundamental concepts of robotics, Global Positioning System, (GPS) and geographic information systems (GIS) during year 1, the second year of the program is devoted to specific application of these technologies to produce food and other biomaterials, and manage natural resources..
