Bots! Hands-On Robotics Projects With Everyday Stuff with Award Winning Author Kathy Ceceri (Part 2 of 2) (LIMITED CAPACITY SESSION)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

PLEASE NOTE: This session has a limited capacity of 25 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. 

In the first part of this session, participants will look at some of the many robotics projects that can be done with just ordinary materials and simple electronics (including reclaimed components from old devices) and try their hand at a quick paper pressure sensor with LED indicator. Then, in the second part, educators will visit different stations where they can work on longer projects such as a hydraulic arm, recycled solar robot, working paper robot hand, and programmable cardboard box robot, and explore ways these projects can be customized by students to provide an open-ended learning experience.
