Robotics and Coding for All! Let's put an Edison Bot in your hands and explore hands-on STEM together

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Robotics is one of the most versatile STEM tools in that it allows for design thinking in both physical and computational design. It's also just super engaging and fun to learn to take control of a machine and the instantaneous feedback makes for a dynamic learning environment. Seeing a student realize for the first time that they are talking to / controlling a machine with code never disappoints. Microbric Robotics from Australia has created the Edison robot, an affordable platform that is codable on a Chromebook in three different "languages" (primary blockly, scratch or python) and can be engineered with Lego blocks for nearly endless creations. If you have never coded but could picture robots in your school or curriculum, come let me introduce you to your own Edison and give you a broad hands-on introduction. If you're a robotics guru but have never explored the Edison, this will be a great session as I know you will love this platform. I've successfully used the Edison with students from K-12 and the potential curricular connections are limitless. I guarantee Edison can turn anyone into a coder - come let me show you how.

Registration Fee $75 - includes an Edison Robot - to ensure that the robots can be ordered and shipped on time, this workshop registration must be completed by Oct 1, 2021!!
