FIRST Lego League Jr, FIRST Lego League, FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotics Competition Project Books Now Available
Currently approved for Orange County, Florida application,
and they are in the process of gaining approval for statewide, and eventually nationwide, application. Our 4-H Agent anticipates that they will be adopted at the state level for the next 4-H year.
Project work lies at the heart of the 4-H experience. Through 4-H project work youth have an opportunity to participate in hands-on learning experiences on a subject of personal interest. Along the way youth learn responsibility, public speaking skills, teamwork and other vital life skills.
As a 4-H team in the past it has been a challenge to complete the standard 4-H project books following the tenets of FIRST and 4-H. During the offseason time, our team decided to develop a FIRST 4-H Project book for all levels of FIRST. These project books are for students to use during the 4-H year and FIRST season to keep records of what they do on the team, costs, award submissions, and documenting their year in FIRST and 4-H. Combining the tenets of both FIRST and 4-H we think that these Project Books will benefit all FIRST 4-H teams nation-wide once approved. Currently it is approved to use at our Orange County 4-H Branch (17 FIRST teams) and our agent has forwarded them on to the State Science Action team with 4-H in Florida to be review for use for all State teams.
