Current Residency Programs
Robotic Explorations (Edison)
Students will build, code, & explore robotic engineering in a dynamic, discovery-based process. These programmable Edison Robots will amaze your students and spark their scientific curiosity! Working in partners, students will explore robotic challenges such as “Follow a Light”, “Clap Controlled Driving”, “Avoiding Obstacles”, “Line Tracking” and “Sumo-Wrestling”! Student led presentations promote sharing and collaborative learning throughout each session.
Do you want to go deeper into Robotic Engineering?
Our Teacher’s Pet staff will visit each class for a second session. Students will use web-based coding software to expand their robotic experience!
