Cosmosphere 4-H Drone and Robot Olympics

Cosmosphere 4-H Drone + Robot Olympics will begin Friday, October 4, at 4 p.m., and will end on Saturday, October 5, 4 p.m. Cost will be $115 for youth between 9-18-years old and $85 for all adult chaperones (all youth must have a designated chaperone to attend).  This Cosmosphere collaboration is designed to be an adult-child experience, where 4-H members and adults can interact and learn from these fun and educational experiences.

Participants will receive introduction education about drones and robots, then split between a robot group and drone group, then continue training activities for each vehicle and finally, a team competition with several challenges using both vehicles. Participants will learn how to program robots and use sensors and understand how to pilot drones. There will also be a tour of the Cosmosphere, a planetarium show, and a digital dome program. Registration also includes three meals and an overnight stay.

Deadline for registration is September 20th.
