EDSCI 6018 Learning, Design, and Robotics: Gateway to Critical Thinking

Our robotics laboratory is a fun, engaging course that infuses engineering-based projects into K-12 instruction. We build robots from scratch; learn programming with and without electronics; experiment with simulations; develop media-rich curricula while integrating common core and STEM standards; examine trending issues in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) education; and discuss the pedagogies that support these approaches. Encouragement of pupils under-represented in STEM K-12 classes is examined. Participants purchase robotic kits in lieu of textbooks. All levels welcome.
