More Than Robots

MetalCow Robotics is a 4-H SPIN Club that participates in FIRST Robotics Competition. But, it is much more than robotics; it is a small business where members learn digital media, advertising, web design, public speaking, business skills, and leadership.

With the guidance of volunteer adult mentors, students manage the business of the team and create robots from the ground up.
