Black Hills - January Technical Session: Robotics and Computer Science in K-12: What's Happening in Education and How You Can Be Involved

Share

Robots, coding and engineering design challenges have become popular in K-12 classrooms. Those classrooms are using collaborative and innovative ways to teach STEM by incorporating Ozobots, Sphero, Dash and Dot and more. During this session with Technology and Innovation in Education (TIE) staff, we will look at the coding resources and activities available to students. This will be a hands-on program and attendees will be able to try out the devices.
