Missouri 4-H STEM Extravaganza
May 1, 2021 — We hope that in-person events will be possible but will continue to monitor and follow University of Missouri guidelines as we approach the event date.
The Missouri 4-H STEM Extravaganza will allow 4-H members in the Robotics and Computer Science projects an opportunity to showcase the skills they have gained in teamwork, engineering, programming, and problem solving. There will be a few contests: RoboPet Challenge, Robot Exhibition, Computer Science contest, and STEM Projects Exhibition. Robot platforms include Lego Mindstorms, VEX IQ/EDR/V5, or any other appropriate robot meeting the requirements of the challenges. Interviews are part of the challenges. Participants may also have an educational display and/or demonstration.
