About Hill County 4-H Robotics
We are a 4-H club that is dedicated to learning, building and programming robots. We use the Lego® EV3 Mindstorm robotics kit to build and the companion software to program these bots. Please note that our club has access to a kit to use during meetings and practices. Although encouraged for extra practice and familiarity, it is not required for club members to purchase or have a kit of their own.
