KAET- Eight Educational Outreach is pleased to announce the ASSET – Robotics STEM Workshop for Educators. The workshops will take place on two dates this month. One workshop will be held on October 13th and one will be held on October 20th at the Downtown ASU Campus in the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism building.
The workshops are so popular, each one filled within a month of publishing registration details.
Both educators and students will gain from the Robotics Workshops. The educators will participate in professional development during the event, as well as challenge their students to engage in math and science. The goal is to have educators go back to their schools and begin a Robotics Club. To help the teachers kick this off, any team that participates in the workshops will be given one Lego NXT Mindstorms Robotics kit; a $270 value.
