Sparks 4-H Robotics Club meets on the second Monday of each month from 7p-9p at the University of Maryland Extension Office located at 700 Agricultural Center Dr, Westminster, MD 21157.  The Club is open to all young men and women ages 8-18.  To be a member of the club, you must join the Maryland 4-H and register with Caroll County 4-H.  For the 2016-2017 program year, total annual registration fees were $20.00/child.

Throughout the year, we design, build, and program robots that we will compete with at the Carroll County 4-H Fair at the end of July.  The winners from that event will go on to compete at the Maryland State Fair in August.  The high school winners of the State contest receive an all-expenses paid trip to Purdue University at the end of September, where they compete in the 4-H National Engineering Challenge
