Webinar – Robots in Your OST Programs? Yes! Your Learners Won’t Want to Leave.

February 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Considering bringing robotics into your Out of School Time (OST) programs? You’ve come to the right place! During this webinar, panelists from a museum, community outreach, and enrichment center will share how they’ve used innovative STEAM robotics in OST settings – providing kids with engaging, hands-on fun, practicing critical thinking and creative problem-solving.

Hear about how KIBO, a screen-free STEAM robot, is easily (and playfully) implemented into elementary-level programs and how you can integrate these experiences into your learning environments – creating programs learners won’t want to leave! Bring on the STEAM fun with KIBO, the screen-free robot that offers young children, in PreK-upper elementary, a hands-on, playful way to learn to code!  The kids won’t want to stop coding and won’t want to leave!

In this webinar, we’ll discuss the research and the benefits of using robotics for elementary learners in an afterschool, out of school or enrichment program and how you can easily integrate robotics and coding into your unique situation.

Panelists include:
  • Joy Foremaster – Director of Education (Community Outreach), PBS Reno, Reno, NV
  • Ash Friend, Education Director & Melissa Donner, Education Manager – ScienceWorks Hands-On Museum, Ashland, OR
  • Baziel Pierce – Developmental Technologist & Instructional Designer, Pearce Learning Tech (PLT), Atlanta, GA
