Exploring Robotics PD and support for teachers.

We understand that math and science teachers often don't have the time to become experts at robotics, and that large class sizes mean less time to spend with each student. guy smiling with laptop iStock 000017470734XSmall

First we develop turn-key curriculum and robot kits.  Everything needed to successfully teach is included.  Each curriculum is paired with robot kits, storage boxes, batteries, spare parts, tools for teachers, Teacher PD, and support. 

Next, we include comprehensive lessons and lesson plans for various school terms.  The curriculum includes online active learning lessons, videos, 3D models with step by step instructions, worksheets, quizzes, and other items which support self-paced instruction. Our curriculum is designed to be self-paced and students can work in teams. 

We provide a teacher book and online resources and tips for using lessons in various types of classrooms.  We also include a getting started guide that helps teachers prepare for teaching with the materials.

Next, we provide a two-hour video conference training session for teachers, with additional materials available online.

Finally, we provide phone and email support.  When you need us, we are there to help.  Contact Us.

 

We know teachers are busy and often don't have time to learn about robots and engineering while planning STEM lessons. That's why we created curricula with robot kits to help teach STEM topics like Physical Science, Algebra, Geometry, Physics, Science, Computer Science, and Mechatronics.  

Our lessons are also cross-curricula with exercises that include reading, writing, research, math, social studies, art, music, and more!
