Are you teaching with robotics? Do you want to connect with others who do too? The Robotics Roundup will bring together robotics teachers to share ideas and ponder questions together. This professional learning event will be structured much like an EdCamp: We will ask questions, and you can identify areas you feel comfortable speaking to, and we will work through these problems of practice together.
When you leave, you will have:
· Some questions answered
· Some ideas for teaching with robotics
· A network of colleagues to move forward with
· Anything you want to share - task design, assessment tools, project ideas, your robots (if you want), resources you have found valuable.
· Your questions
Eat | Light refreshments will be served
