Mad Scientists 4-H Club See Robots at Work

Darin Rosenboom explains how robots help in building cylinders.

Real life robots were the attraction for the Mad Scientists 4-H Club tour or Rosenboom Manufacturing in Sheldon. Club leader, Mike Post, accepted Darin Rosenboom's invitation to tour the plant.  4-H parent and part-owner of Rosenboom Manufacturing, Darin gave the club a close-up look at robots in action building cylinders.  The first-year, club has been learning "how to think like a scientist" and "build like an engineer."  This tour gave them an opportunity see how these science skills can become a future career.

The 4-H motto, "to make the best better," has always been about applying science to our everyday lives.  The Mad Scientists 4-H Club has taken that motto to heart and is focusing on STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) projects.  Robotics is fun and exciting part of the STEM area.
