Wakefield 5th and 6th Graders Experiment with EcoBots

Wakefield Students Pass the Eco-Bot Challenge

October 17, 2012

National Science Experiment

Mr. Brenn's 5th and 6th grade science students participated in the 2012 National 4-H Science Experiment.

For the fifth annual 4-H National Youth Science Day (NYSD), the Ohio State University has designed the 4-H Eco-Bot Challenge:  the 2012 National Science Experiment.  The experiment will introduce students to robotic engineering concepts as they program an autonomous robot to clean up a simulated environmental spill.

In October, students across the nation became scientists for a day.  This year's experiment, the Eco-Bot Challenge, students enhanced their engineering skills by assembling their own Eco-Bots and surface controls to manage an environmental clean-up.  Youth then tested the interaction between the Eco-Bot's design features and various surface control configurations to determine the most effective clean-up solution for the simulated spill.

The experiment was coordinated by Sandy Preston, UNL Extension Educator with cooperation of Mr. Brenn (Wakefield).
