Upcoming Workshop: STREAM 2011 - June 29, 2011
STREAM: Using Robots to Teach Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math
This year's STREAM workshop will be taking place on June 29, 2011 at the Sturbridge Host Hotel & Conference Center in Sturbridge, MA. 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.
STREAM 2011 features an interactive session, "Artbotics: Attracting Students to STEM." In this workshop participants will experience the structure and process of the Artbotics program. Typically run in semester or week-long sessions, this all-day workshop will introduce kinetic art concepts, a variety of sensor and motor types, and computer programming with Cricket Logo. Participants will create interactive art which will be presented in a short exhibition at the end of the day.
The STREAM 2011 workshop is organized by the University of Massachusetts Lowell and iRobot. Financial support is provided by UMass Lowell, CAITE, Boston SIM, and iRobot.
