Using Robotics to Meet the New Science Standards (Hour 1 of 2)

A close read of the new (draft) Science standards reveals that students should be learning engineering principles and creating their own models for each of the major concepts. This can be overwhelming, especially when many of the topics we've taught in the past are switching to different grade levels! On top of this are additional encouragements to incorporate more computer science into our teaching. The only solution is to use an integrated, project-based approach. In this session, we will engage participants in creating and programming robotic models of science concepts. We will also share interdisciplinary projects that we have developed and piloted with elementary students and teachers in the STEM endorsement program.
