4H Robotics Participants Prepare for State Fair Competition

Updated: Thursday, August 21 2014, 08:32 PM EDT

4H Robotic Competition participants met Wednesday evening at the Carroll County Ag Center to prepare for the Maryland State Fair this weekend.

Four to 12 participants ranging from eight-to-18 years old are eligible. The young engineers have been building their 12-inch robots over the past year with scraps of metal, nuts and bolts. The finished robot is then connected to a computer program.

One student, Evan Phillips, says he spent more than 40 hours of intricate detail work on his robot which will transfer more than 50-golfballs to specified holes, which is the goal of the competition.

ā€œI want to stay in the club for eternity,ā€ said Phillips.

The Carroll County students will compete on Sunday against kids from around the state.
