Robots & Literature: A Perfect Match

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As schools introduce more robot and coding into the curriculum, how do we link these activities with subjects outside the science realm? The presenters will share how they have collaborated to create an interactive literacy and robot project for their elementary grade students. Attendees will learn more about the project, and the skills students developed through this project. Attendees will participate in a hands on process where they will work through all the steps the students did with this project, starting with exploration, design, ideating and testing. Participants will have an opportunity to explore the various robots, technology, and materials used.
