4-H to Host World’s Largest Youth-Led Drone Engineering Challenge

Drones are a revolutionary technology that has a myriad of applications in agriculture, forestry and environmental stewardship.

Cornell University Cooperative Extension aims to introduce the next generation to drones in a three part engineering challenge that had youth diving into the world of drone engineering at the 4H National Youth Science Day. Children got to experiment with fixed and rotary wing designs and explore the concept of remote sensing. 

The drone challenge is part of a larger 4-H STEM initiative that has 5 million kids every year complete projects in agricultural science, robotics, environmental science, and other fields.
