The Robots are Coming! Integrating Robotics Across the Curriculum
July 19 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm$35
Looking to learn more about integrating robotics into your STEM curriculum? Interested in discovering the latest models designed for use by K-8 students?
Join us for this hands-on workshop, where participants will have the chance to test drive some of today’s most popular K-8 robots (Micro:bits, Sphero, Makey-Makey, Dash & Dot, Cosmo, and Root, to name a few). Participants will also be able to travel to multiple concurrent stations, where they can test robots using pre-programmed task cards or get creative by programming a task card of their own.
