The wild robot, Roz, continues her adventures in Peter Brown's book The Wild Robot Escapes, as she tries to return to her island. Take your Edison use to the next level as you engage in challenges inspired by Roz's daring story. Learn new ways to cultivate STEM minds using Edison's various levels of coding and engineering options. Bring a laptop and ONE Edison robot with you to learn more about EdBlocks and EdScratch coding apps. There will also be a chance to explore coding with Python for those that want to jump to the highest level of coding with Edison. Finally, you can engineer with Edison using the EdCreate kit which allows you to build EdTank, EdDigger, EdRoboClaw, EdCrane, and EdPrinter. (https://meetedison.com/edcreate/) The STEMAZing Kit (valued at about $80) for this workshop includes a SECOND Edison Robot and an EdCreate kit!

This workshop is part of the STEMAZing Workshop Series. The STEMAZing Project’s philosophy on teacher professional development is simple: It must be hands-on and engaging – putting the educators in the seat of the students to experience STEM lessons firsthand. It must provide the educators with the equipment and supplies they need to implement the lessons and activities in their classrooms the next day if they choose. It must be facilitated by master educators who have themselves been in the classroom.
