We'll be in D.C. for the upcoming USASEF - we hope you'll join us!
In just a few weeks, we’ll be heading east to attend the United States Science & Engineering Festival (a.k.a. USASEF). USASEF is the largest STEM education event in the country and we are very excited.
This is a reminder that we are hosting a few events that are free to anyone attending the pre-USASEF educator workshop. We would love for you to join us!
The first event is Drag and Drop Programming for Robotics, taking place on Thursday, April 24th from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.. During this workshop we’ll be using ArduBlocks, which is very similar to Scratch, to explore the six most important concepts for beginning roboticists. What are the six most important concepts? Join us to find out!
The second event will be Arduino Basics on April 24th from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.. We’ll discuss introductory Arduino concepts and show you how you can use Arduino in your classroom.
Lastly, we are hosting a Robotics Hangout in partnership with Ten80 Education on Friday, April 25th, from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.. This will be a more laid-back event where we can discuss robotics, do some hands-on electronics projects and talk shop.
Finally on Saturday and Sunday (the 26th and 27th), we’ll be in the RobotFest section soldering away and doing occasional workshops. We’ll be set up next to our buddies from Parallax. Come by try your hand at some beginner soldering. We’ll also be putting on workshops about Pico and Scratch at 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM both Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday in the afternoon you can learn how to sew e-textiles with some of our e-textile specialists at 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM. Sunday from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM we’ll be helping people learn how to reprogram their Simons.
We hope you can join us at one (or all) of these events!
