What’s involved in making a robot? How do I successfully design a robot with specific tasks in mind? Empowering students to be creative problem solvers is essential to education especially in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Exploring robotics naturally leads students to develop questions in these areas and prompts them towards genuine, long-lasting learning. We will dive into integrated learning in the STEM areas as students work collaboratively to complete challenges throughout the week.
