PLEASE NOTE: This session has a limited capacity of 30 people. Seating is first-come, first-serve; advance RSVP is not available and adding a session to your agenda in Sched does not guarantee you a seat. This is a two part session and attendees are expected to stay for both parts.

This is a two-hour workshop to introduce educators to robotics using Python programming and electronic circuit building with a pre-built cyber:bot. Every educator who attends the workshop will receive a free cyber:bot kit ($200.00 value) courtesy of Parallax (www.parallax.com) and Cyber Innovation Center (www.nicerc.org), who will distribute up to $12,000 of robot hardware.

Each of the two courses are limited to 30 middle school or high school tech education instructors. Educators must bring with them a fully-functional laptop computer with working USB ports and power supply. Be on time and ready to have fun!
