Explore the Sport of the Mind - Robotics for K-12,
Pittsburgh is well-known for robotics - Carnegie Mellon University, Astrobotics, RedZone Robotics, and more. There are lots of opportunities available for kids in grades K-12 to be involved in robotics. This session will focus on robotics programs from FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology).
FIRST programs are a great way to learn STEAM skills including effective presentation skills, mathematics, programming and engineering. You will learn about FIRST LEGO League Junior, FIRST LEGO League (FLL), FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), and FIRST Robotics Challenge (FRC).
This is a hands-on workshop and kids will be able to interact with small and large robots.
This event is hosted by three award-winning FIRST teams (FLL Not the Droids You Are Looking For, FTC BrainSTEM Robotics and FRC FRobotics)
