Description
The proposed project introduces engineering, education and elementary school students to computational thinking using Sphero robots. In particular, it trains engineering students on modern computational techniques and provides them with a sound understanding of the crucial role computing and coding play in configuring the physical functioning of programmable artifacts in engineering. Engineering students will engage in service-learning activities through a partnership with education students and faculty. Engineering students and pre-service teachers will collaboratively design and deliver engineering lessons using Sphero robots to elementary school students.
