Robotics meets Rube Goldberg!

Come "Build it Up !" with us as we begin our winter session of 4-H Robotics!

This year, we will be adding a little twist to our program as  part of our sessions will focus on Rube Goldberg!  Sessions will include building and programming a robot made out of Legos and creating machines that use a chain reaction to complete a simple task. Still not sure what Rube Goldberg is? Check out some of these favorite movies and watch these machines at work: Edward Scissorhands, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Back to the Future I and III, Superman III and Goonies, just to name a few! 

The sessions will on Thursdays from 3:30 pm- 5pm at the Ortonville Library.  Cost for the entire program is $10.  Dates are: January 11, 18, and 25; February 1, 8, 15 and 22; March 1,8,15, 22,and 29. Youth involved in the program will also take tours of Poet BioRefining and Big Stone Power Plant. For more information about the 4-H Robotics program, contact Cara Greger at 320-808-4897 or the Big Stone County Extension Office at 320-839-6380.
