This Edutopia article discusses how teachers who are looking to incorporate science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) as well as computer science (CS) into their curriculum can consider robots and robotics while still keeping the instructional focus of their class.
The article reads in part:
“For example, to enhance a literature lesson, students can represent the journey of literary characters through programmed robots. In math class, students can find distance and speed traveled and calculate the time to run a program for their robot.
Moreover, teachers do not have to abandon their entire curriculum to participate in STEM. Instead, implement one project or performance task a semester, and connect it to learning in your area for no more than two to three weeks at a time. Keep things simple, and focus on fun and the intended learning.”
