District 9 Round-up

This year, robotics was introduced to upper Gulf Coast Counties of Texas (District 9 Round-up). The robotics competition, held at the Lone Star Community College in Montgomery County, combined agriculture and robotics to teach 4-H youth about Science, Technology, Engineer and Math careers in agriculture.

The contest was designed to engage youth in the 4-H program by using agriculture and robotics to teach youth about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers in agriculture. The youth were introduced to agriculture by using robotics to show the connection between agriculture, nutrition and GPS technology used in farming to move unmanned agriculture equipment to harvest and plant crops. The youth were provided a chance to participate in the event without competing in the traditional 4-H contest. The competition included 14 teams from the District 9 4-H programs which was a total of 30 youth and 10 volunteers.

The Robotics competition was led by 4-H & Youth Development Agents Ricky Mahaley and Marcus Glenn (CEP-PVAMU), Program Assistant Ebony Ellis, and Harris County Director Dr. Allen Malone. The next event will be held at Texas A&M University. All teams are invited to participate in the open challenge event and a chance to win awards for the state of Texas 4-H programs.
