How Robots Are Taking Over the World (of Education)

While I was in NYC last month, I had the opportunity to give a Google Tech Talk on educational robotics. If you’re interested in hearing more about how students are using robots (and what makes it hard to get robots into students’ hands), check it out:

How do you excite kids about science, technology, engineering and math? Give them robots! Join Kristen Stubbs of iRobot to find out why STEM education is important, how innovative robotics programs are capturing students’ imaginations, and what challenges face any robot dreaming of educational world domination. You’ll also see how Googlers are supporting robotics education with a live demo of the Cellbots Android app. Come get a glimpse of how robots are changing science, technology, engineering and math education!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
