If you are looking to purchase robots for your district, to learn more about the robots you already have, or if you wish to borrow robots through Model Schools, this course is for you! Each session will be one hour - come to as many sessions as you like!
9AM-10AM - Blue-Bot
Blue-Bots are friendly-looking bees that can be programmed by touch or with an app on a mobile device. Blue-Bots are appropriate for grades Pre-K-5.
10AM-11AM - Dash and Dot
Dash and Dots are blue robots that can interact with each other, and can be programmed on your mobile device using a variety of apps. They are appropirate for K-5 but can extend into early middle school.
11AM-12PM - Ozobot
Ozobots are tiny robots that can be programmed using a marker and paper or with an application on your computer or device. Ozobots can be used for visual coding in the elementary or block-based coding at the middle or high school level.
Cubelets involve three types of magnetic blocks - sense (input) blocks, action (output) blocks, and think (processing) blocks. They can be combined to create robots. Cubelets can be used with grades K-12.
2PM-3PM - Sphero
Spheros are robotic balls that can be programmed with an app on a mobile device. Sphero is appropriate for grades 3-12.
Participants should bring a mobile device and will receive an email with a list of apps they should load prior to the class. Those that wish to stay all day will have a one-hour lunch on their own.
This class was originally scheduled for March 9th.
