Web-based teacher, mentors, and coaches training using ROBOTC with LEGO Mindstorms and TETRIX.
Tuition includes online access to the ROBOTC Curriculum for TETRIX and LEGO MINDSTORMS software.
The TETRIX metal building system adds powerful and exciting functionality to LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT robots, but getting started with both platforms can be quite a challenge. Taught by the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy’s education staff, this web-based course is designed to support teachers, mentors and coaches as they learn how to program using ROBOTC with Lego Mindstorms and TETRIX robots. In addition, attendees will experience first hand how robotic activities can be used to teach science, technology, engineering and mathematics. TETRIX hardware is not required to participate in class, but TETRIX materials will be covered during some portions of the class.
