2018 Illinois 4-H Robotics Challenge: Envirobot
“If you want to learn about the health of a population, look at the air they breathe, the water they drink, and the places where they live."
– Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, in the Fifth Century B.C.
This year’s challenge revolves around one of the most important issues our world faces, environmental health. With major bodies like the World Health Organization estimating that over 12 million deaths are attributable to unhealthy environments annually, it is important that we begin to tackle this issue today for the sake of our future. As a result, each task this year will revolve around EH, and will help illuminate the challenges we face in dealing with EH related issues.
