Robotics in the Classroom is a hands-on practical workshop provides teachers with the necessary skills to plan and implement various robotic technologies into the curriculum.
Robotics is a fun and highly engaging method of creating collaborative and challenging activities in science, maths, literacy and other key learning areas.
Participants will explore a variety of stage appropriate robotic devices including:
An ideal workshop for schools who wish to introduce robotics into the curriculum.
Session 1 – Why teach with Robotics?
We will look at the Australian Curriculum and it’s relevance to Robotic concepts.
Session 2 – Exploring with Bee-Bot for Stage 1
Bee-Bot is an ideal way for introducing programming to young students. We will look at ways to incorporate Bee-Bot into Literacy, Numeracy and HSIE lessons.
Session 3 – Pro-Bot Programming for Stage 2
In this session we will look at how Pro-Bot is a great way for measuring distance and angles.
Session 4 – Tami-Creative Robot Programming for Stage 3
Learn about programming, control and sensors as you drive your robotic car around “Mt Panorama”.
Session 5 – Sphero Robots and iPads
Want to engage students in Maths? We will show you how with the Sphero robotic ball for iPad/Android tablets.
