Using robotics to get Alaska students excited about science, technology

Using robotics to get Alaska students excited about science, technology | Robots in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Robotics is a great way to teach younger students science, Nicoll said. If someone is considering a science career, it’s best to take as many science and math courses as possible before college. For students who go to smaller schools, such as the Effie Kokrine Early College Charter School, the science outreach program offers the opportunity for such classes.

CAS Community | Raspberry Pi Junkbot

CAS Community | Raspberry Pi Junkbot | Robots in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The junkbot project is about creating robots made from junk. This is an initiative to introduce environmental sustainability, engineering and computing to students.

This resource Raspberry Pi Junkbot looks at the next stage combining the junkbot with a Raspberry Pi to make the system programmable.

A modified version of Scratch (ScratchGPIO) is used to control a motor. An example of drawing junkbot is shown with the code.

Level:Beginner / Intermediate

Teaches: Programming, control of a physical device.
