South Dakota Robotics Association Classes, South Dakota Robotics Association
We have lots of classes in robotics throughout April. Check our calendar and course listing for the full selection. Our classes focus on the basics for doing "good science." We practice accurate measurements, variable control, result verification, hypothesizing, and testing. Students explore the concepts for themselves, actually seeing how things work. Based on the understanding that different age groups learn differently, our instructional levels reinforce the basic science concepts and pair them with age-appropriate content. We're not just about playing with LEGO® building elements, we use those to engineer solutions to problems. The fun comes with the LEGO building, of course, but the students are surprised to find that the engineering and science is just as fun

High School HUmanoid Robotics Course, New Albany - Plain Local Schools
Thanks to a grant from the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation, we are piloting a unique high school course using a NAO H25 Advanced Humanoid Robot from Aldebaran Robotics. Four high school girls, led by senior Lauryn Woodyard, are working with 5th grade science teachers. They have programmed "Henry" NAO to help 5th graders learn about Force & Motion. Henry will "bowl" to illustrate momentum, inertia and friction. He will also accept MatchBox cars from the kids, place them on a ramp, start and time the race, so kids can compute average velocity over several trials. Our objective, if this inter-generational experiment proves to aid in learning, is to create a network of high schools engaged in similar work. This will allow high school students to collaborate on multi-generational projects across the nation. Imagine: our high school can donate the code for the bowling and ramp races, while obtaining the code from another school for having a NAO robot help teach math, recite Shakespeare, help youngsters with vocabulary, and more.

Free Robot Virtual Worlds Webinar, Robomatter, Inc.
We understand the challenges robotics classrooms face every day in terms of cost, number of robots, batteries, and homework. That is why we created Robot Virtual Worlds (RVW). With RVW, every student can experience the same benefits of learning robots, right on their computer. RVW currently simulates popular real-world VEX, LEGO, and TETRIX robots in a 3D environment; while using the same language, ROBOTC, to program both your virtual robot and your physical robot. To help you get started and get a better understanding of what RVW can do, we are offering a FREE webinar on Google Hangout on Monday April 8 at 4pm EST with project manager, Jesse Flot, and some members of his team! We will show you a brief tutorial on the specific topic of the day then take a few questions from the Google Hangout chat or on twitter using hashtag #RVWHangout. Topic: Using the RVW Curriculum Companion. - Free ROBOTC Curriculum, including programming challenges. - Programming challenges, along with the curriculum robots. - Solve one of the challenges. - Benefits of using RVW in addition to or in place of real robots. - Badges with RVW and on CS2N.
