LinkBot is a fully functional robot that is specially designed for integrating computing and STEM education  into your curriculum. Attendees will learn how to teach math and coding using this “grab and go” system that is Chromebook friendly and smoothly transitions into more complex robotic platforms.

The “Introduction to Robotics’’ workshop  will also bring Next Generation Science Standards to life for your students while providing them with hands-on application of STEM subjects.  This workshop will show you how to expand your students’ computational thinking and technical skills needed to excel in those subjects.

Attendees will receive free standards-based curriculum for their grade level.

Workshops are limited to the first 20 teachers who register.  Early registration is recommended.  To register for the workshop of your choice, please contact MEEC Program Specialist, Samantha Murray at smurray@mdaqmd.ca.gov or (760) 245-1661 ext. 6717.  *Educators are required  to  provide their own laptop for the workshop (No Tablets)
