The network of robotics leaders/coaches/mentors is growing. Only a small percentage of these volunteers are engineers by trade. The others come from diverse backgrounds and bring expertise in problem solving, teamwork, communication, project management, design, etc.
The following resources have been developed to help this group of leaders use each other as a resource, and to better promote the successes of our 4-H clubs/teams:
Facebook Group Page: Illinois 4-H Robotics (anyone can request membership). Members invited to post questions, successes, videos, photos, etc.
Google Group: Illinois 4-H Robotics (anyone can request membership but primarily designed for club leaders). To join, please send email addresses to firstname.lastname@example.org The googlegroup includes a listserv that we can use to post and respond to leader questions.
All of the adult leaders who brought a team to the 4th annual state competition have been added to the google group. But please help share these resources with your other 4-H robotics volunteers as well!
