Local Group Building Robots


SCHUYLER COUNTY - [WENY-TV] Science, Engineering, Technology. When you combine all 3, cool things come out of it. The 4-H regional program brings kids and teens from all over the area, where they learn to build, and solve problems as a team, building friendship amongst them.

"My team is a great bunch of guys, we're all pretty friendly with each other, and its nice to be able to build something out of raw material and parts, and make it work, and to do it with a group of people that you are friends with" Said Tristan Ponader.

Overall the program will also give these kids valuable skills that are in high demand. Many of the kids in the program want to go to college for related fields.
