What makes a robot a robot? How do they sense? How do they move?
The Bureau of Lectures is proud to bring you a brand new interactive journey from simple, funny robots to complex (and super cute) humanoid robots. Explore the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) concepts that bring Robots to life! Your students will get to interact and assist with robots on the cutting edge of technology and then see the robots carry out their commands.
Concepts to be explored:
- Sensing/Electricity – How do switches work? What is electricity? How do other senses sense?
- Programming – How do robots “know” what to do?
- Output/Motors – How can we turn electricity into motion, light, or other forms of energy?
- Feedback Loops – Self correction is what robots uniquely do.
The presenter was outstanding! I, as well as my teaching staff, felt that his delivery was clear and concise and was able to thoroughly educate and entertain the students. He inspired us to launch our own after school robotics program! Would recommend to anyone.
The presenter kept the students engaged from the beginning of the show to the end. Each student had a favorite robot and loved being able to “do the robot” with the robots! The staff and students loved the information he provided and were especially impressed at, not only his grasp of the concepts, but his ability to pass them on to the students. Thank you.
This was a truly excellent program. Even though a lot of the information was higher level, it was presented in a way that all the students were able to understand.
Fun, informative, and clever. We had two groups ranging from 3rd grade to 12th and the speaker held everyone’s attention. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend this program to anyone.
We have already recommended the program to other schools. The presenter was excellent and his ability to bring in the STEM curriculum really helped in making these concepts relevant to the students.
We were totally engrossed in the program the entire time. Several students responded with, 'that was awesome!'
