The AscendTech 4-H chapter was founded in 2016, comprised of self-motivated and driven high school students that wanted to participate in the MATE Underwater Robotics Competition. In this competition, students build an underwater robot, otherwise known as a remotely operated vehicle (ROV). The AscendTech 4-H Chapter is also dedicated to teaching the community about the fundamentals of digital electronics, utilizing the Arduino platform, as well as engineering principles through community-wide workshops.
The mission of AscendTech 4-H Club is to improve ourselves, our homes, our club, and our community. It is also to teach and learn through the shared robotics experience and promotion of technology education.
The Rutgers Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development program uses a learn-by-doing approach to enable youth to develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to become competent, caring, and contributing citizens of the world. This mission is accomplished by using the knowledge and resources of the land-grant university system, along with the involvement of caring adults.
The 4-H Youth Development Program is part of Rutgers Cooperative Extension. 4-H educational programs are offered to all youth, grades K-13, on an age-appropriate basis, without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability. For additional information, call (732) 431-7260 or visit Rutgers online.
