Bridging the Digital Divide through Creative Robotics with Hummingbird

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Robots in English class? Of course! Learn to meaningfully engage your students in targeted content through creative robotics using the Hummingbird Robotics Kit! In this hands-on learning session, participants will program the LEDs, motors, and sensors of the Hummingbird Robotics Kit using block-based coding. While creative robotics can certainly build coding and computational thinking skills, it can also engage students holistically in authentic engineering and coding tasks through high-interest AND content-aligned projects like Robot Petting Zoo, Robot Shakespeare, and Modeling Joints. The Hummingbird Robotics Kit and the accompanying educational materials were developed through NSF-funded research at Carnegie Mellon University. All skill levels are welcome, including absolute beginners.
