House of Wild Robots

June 6, 2023

 Inspired by the books, A Rover’s Story by Jasmine Warga and The Little Wooden Robot and the Log Princess by Tom Gauld, join our Robot Generals, Sherrie Dennis and Michael Griffith, for three days of getting to know the Edison robots and their coding platforms (EdBlocks, EdScratch, and EdPy). Engineer solutions for A Rover’s Story inspired challenges our Robot Generals have dreamed up. Take your Edison on EdVentures left untold by the Wooden Robot and the Log Princess. Starting with a simple bar code scan and progressing through drag-and-drop block Scratch programming and ending with Python – a legitimate programming language used in the real world, teachers from a wide grade range will experience how they can engage their students with these powerful little robots. Teachers will receive a STEMAZing kit with 8 robots, 4 EdMats, 2 EdCreate kits, rechargeable batteries and more. Everything you need to establish a small army of programmable robots will be included in the STEMAZing kit valued at more than $450. 

NOTE: You are not allowed to attend this strand if you have participated in a three-day STEMAZing Institute Edison strand in the past and/or if you already have 12 or more Edison robots. We hope your robot army continues to grow but want to let other educators take advantage of the same opportunity you had.
