Robotism Rocks! – April 7

Saturday, March 04, 2017

Come celebrate the North Carolina Science Festival with the Watson College of Education’s STEM Learning Cooperative – and lots of robots! The event will be held at the Watson College on April 7 from 10 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Bee-Bots (grades K-2), Ozo-Bots (grades 2-4), Pro-Bots (grades 3-8), Sphero-Bots (grades 4-high school), Lego Mindstorms (grades 5-high school) and Cozmo robots (all ages) will be on hand to engage students in understanding robotics and simple programming through a variety of fun, hands-on activities.

Robotism Rocks will provide special education students, particularly those with Autism Spectrum Disorder, hands-on opportunities to explore and program robots.

Explore robot art and create your own masterpieces. Discover careers that use robots. Meet educators, scientists and engineers who will be on site to help engage students with the robots. This event has been planned with the guidance of special education professionals. Register your student or a classroom full of students to participate. There is no charge for this event.
