Creative Robotics in Your Community, Classroom and Home!
Overview: This workshop is a blend of project-based learning, maker education, computer science, and engineering. See how to bring creative robotics into your activities with the Hummingbird Robotics Kit.
What you will learn: You will learn to code robotics components like LEDs, motors, and sensors, using programming languages suitable for students in grades 3-12. Then, you'll learn to combine these robotics components with common craft supplies to make cardboard mechanisms, remote controlled recycled rovers, a Robot Petting Zoo Animal, or even re-enact a scene from your favorite book. We'll learn to code and build using laptops, Chromebooks, and iPads/tablets, to serve the needs of everyone.
Design, Build, and Program with Hummingbird: Design, build, and program your own robot using the NEW Hummingbird Bit Robotics Kit and everyday art supplies. This 6-hour introductory workshop is designed for anyone interested in learning robotics, programming, and design. We will provide helpful tips on how you can integrate robotics and create your own working robot.
Who can attend: This training is for people of all skill and comfort levels. You will leave prepared to host events with the Hummingbird Robotics Kit from BirdBrain Technologies in a variety of settings: in a 1 hour workshop, a 6 hour PD day, a demonstration at a staff meeting, or even an open house at your favorite location! (Please note: Each individual that registers will receive a Hummingbird Robotics Kit.)
Illinois Educators can earn 6 PDH's at the conclusion of this event.
Each individual that wants to receive a Hummingbird Robotics Kit MUST register and pay the $125 fee.
