Robotics Resources for Homeschoolers @roboweek #NationalRoboticsWeek #RoboWeek #MakeRobotFriend

Here’s a roundup of some great resources for parents and teachers of homeschool kids on robotics! Why teach robotics? Robotics offers studentsan introduction to coding, engineering, real-world problem solving, and direct experience with a field of science that will continue to transform our world in profound ways. From the Home Education Association of Virginia (HEAV):

An understanding of robotics begins with an understanding of basic machines–and what better way to learn that than through play? These five simple robotics projects can be made with only a few inexpensive supplies, some of which you’ll likely have in your home. These are perfect for young kids and beginners, and may help spark some interest in reluctant learners…. This “Ultimate Guide to Homeschool Robotics” includes a ton of information about how to teach robotics in your homeschool, what you need to research, pitfalls to avoid, how to choose a robot kit or curriculum, and online tools and resources.
