Got automation? Get STEAMed up! When Science, Tech, Engineering, Art, and Math come together, amazing things happen.
Excite your students with an interactive journey through the concepts that bring robots to life. Turn your students into a giant sensor circuit – that really works! Have a magnetic tug of war and see how strong motors can really be. Find your balance through programs that keep robots (and people) from toppling over. Invite a robot to fly up, interact with us, and take a class photo – from above!
Robots can come in all shapes and sizes, and many of them don’t look like humans at all. But what robot show would be complete without a super cute toddler-like humanoid that can dance the Macarena? Or ballet. Or learn new dances from students – because even robots love to learn new steps!
STEAM Robotics is exciting. STEAM Robotics is interactive. STEAM Robotics is funny. And most of all – STEAM Robotics is educational. Aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards, students will learn about:
- Sensing / Electricity – How do senses…sense?
– Sensors are all about electricity, and changing how it flows.
- Programming – How do robots “know” what to do?
– They…usually…follow our instructions.
- Output / Motors – How can we turn electricity into motion, light, or other forms of energy?
– Electromagnetism makes things happen!
- Feedback Loops – How do robots work automatically, and get things right (almost) every time?
– By using what they sense to adjust what they do
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.
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.
