Bring Coding and Robotics to Life in your Classroom

Event Description

As it is becoming increasingly important for students to learn STEM skills at a young age, we must address the challenge head-on by giving educators the tools and methods to prepare their students for STEM-related fields. This workshop is designed for participants who are looking to bring coding, robotics, computer science, and project-based learning to the classroom. During this hands-on session, attendees will learn about coding and robotics using LEGO® SPIKE® Prime to teach students how to solve real-world problems. Attendees will walk away with programming knowledge including basic sensor and motor control, linear programming statements, and loops, in addition to concrete activities for how to apply coding applications in the classroom using robotics. At the end of this session, attendees will feel more than confident in their coding abilities and eager to bring robotics to their classroom and/or school.
