NDSU Extension 4-H programming piques youth interest in STEM
Posted on January 29 2019
North Dakota State University Extension is teaching youth to build and program robots and learn the basics of computer coding.
Now they are offering the robotics programming through 4-H using LEGO EV3 or NXT kits in about 20 counties. For younger youth, NDSU Extension's Center for 4-H Youth Development offers the WeDo program. Youth in kindergarten to about grade five use a LEGO WeDo kit to help them build and program robots.
As mentioned in the article, more and more schools are using LEGO EV3, Boost and WeDo as great tools for teaching programming concept and skills to youth. Our data shows that the demand for those LEGO kits has increased nearly 3 times since last summer. We are very proud of helping the schools and youth to learn those skills.
