This page is your source for information about the STEM Ag Mechanics project. Some know this as welding, brazing, or smithing. Yes, if you are a youth interested in these areas, you may now exhibit at the Kansas State Fair.
This is the first year (2021) for this 4-H program at the Kansas State Fair. We are starting off small and limiting the size of exhibits to things that can be displayed in the space available inside Centennial Hall. In the future we hope to expand the project so that large implements, pen systems, fences, and more can be brought in and displayed, however we don’t have those accommodations for the 2021 State Fair.

**** Posters, Display Boards, & Notebooks, No additional exhibit information is required; no manila envelope is needed for these exhibits. All other exhibits need the additional information included in a manila envelope. All other exhibits need the additional information included in a manila envelope. Displays, notebooks and posters have been combined into one score sheet for all divisions. There will be no robotics challenge in 2019. The GPS/GIS program has been suspended and youth are encouraged to integrate GPS/GIS activities into other Kansas 4-H projects. An example would be using GPS/GIS in conjunction with the UAS program for mapping invasive species.
