Bring Coding and Robotics to Life in your Secondary Classroom – ROE 53

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® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 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.

Use Science, Coding and Robotics in the Elementary Classroom

Event Description

Want to prepare your students for STEM-related fields? Want to bring more engineering and problem-based learning to the classroom? Robotics is an effective way to engage students and integrate science, technology, engineering, and math into your classroom. During this hands-on session, attendees will build and code using LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 to teach coding and standards-based science lessons while learning problem-solving skills. Our approach allows students to deeply engage with science practices and the engineering design process while solving real-world problems. Attendees will walk away with concrete activities that will empower their students to explore, create, and share discoveries as they build and code solutions to real-world problems.
