Are you interested in Robotics possibilities for your students? Using the popular LEGO system we will learn how to build simple robotic systems, including programming and access to various contests. This proven curriculum is best suited for grades 4 – 8 but has also been used in high schools with outstanding results. The JFLL and FLL Robotics contests will be explained and explored. The instructor has extensive experience teaching LEGO robotics both during the school day and in afterschool environments. Note that although the FLL competition is for grades 4-9, the LEGO robotics kits can be used for engaged learning K-12 and beyond. To cover the range of participants experience with LEGO robotics, we will offer 2 concurrent levels to this workshop:
Please register for the workshop which fits your level of experience and plan on bringing your own laptop/tablet as well as the ability to recharge them if needed. We are also providing each instructor with a list of the people registered for their classes, so you will hear from them with more details. If you don’t have a laptop, please let your instructor know when they contact you so other arrangements can be made.
