You will learn how to teach your students to model real-life mechanisms and use creativity, logic, and problem-solving skills while learning key STEM concepts. The trainer will go step by step to teach you how to build, program and teach your students the basics of building a robot. Tips and tricks for classroom management and how to align with the coming science standards will also be discussed.
