Hosted by Rhode Island Students of the Future and Gordon School, this 5 day professional development program will include hands-on, open ended design projects to help adults learn to use LEGO hardware and software and develop an understanding of the FIRST LEGO LEAGUE program. The program will focus on effective implementation: how to share engineering and coding concepts with students in a school-time or after school setting. This 5 day program is open to any K-12 teacher, informal education provider, community youth leader, or member of industry interested in learning about LEGO design, engineering and robotics. Participants will learn the basics of building and programming LEGO EV3 robots, including how to use the motors and sensors and gears. The FLL Project and Core Values will also be addressed, as will strategies for creating a cohesive and successful team.
You do not need to own or provide a LEGO EV3 system in order to participate in this course—all materials will be supplied by our hosts, the Gordon School.
Lunch will be provided daily.
