STREAM 2010 Teacher Workshop at iRobot
The STREAM 2010 Workshop for K-12 educators was held on June 24th and 25th, 2010 at iRobot in Bedford, MA. Participants took part in three workshop sessions and were introduced to many other programs and technologies through short talks. Workshops included Sound Science with LEGO NXT, Robots in the Technology/Engineering Curriculum, and Artbotics: Attracting Students to STEM.
STREAM is a workshop to help K-12 educators utilize robotics as they teach STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) subjects. This workshop will provide educators the opportunity to explore how they might use robotics in their own STEM instruction through interactive sessions as well as through presentations by other educators currently using robotics as a way to teach STEM. Representatives of local technology companies will also describe potential careers for students interested in robotics and STEM disciplines.
