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.
