During your visit to the National Robotics Engineering Center you will participate in several hands-on activities that are being used in classrooms across the country to teach kids how to program and how to do math. The technologies were invented at Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Academy:

Robot Virtual Worlds (RVW) – RVW allows students to program virtual robots using the exact same programming language that they use to program their LEGO, VEX, or Arduino robots. The RVW solution comes in two formats: game-like fantasy worlds and a curricular companion that aligns with the free ROBOTC LEGO and VEX Curriculum.
Robots In Motion – Is a cognitive Tutor Enabled curriculum that is uses a combination of Model Eliciting Activities and LEGO robots to teach proportional reasoning, a “Big Idea” in mathematics.

CS2N takes advantage of three animation programming options. The software and training are free.

You will also learn how the Robotics Academy and CS2N are using badges to motivate and assess student and teacher learning. The Robotics Academy is part of the DML “Badges for Lifelong Learning” initiative and has integrated badges into its activities.
