Learn How to Build and Program LEGO Mindstorms and EV3 Robots

This course will cover how to use robotics to promote student engagement and conceptual understanding of mathematics, science and engineering. Our course activities are designed and based on Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) , Common Core Mathematics Standards, and the International Society for Technology Education (ISTE) standards. Participants will receive micro-credentials upon completion of the course and course series.

The course is for science, mathematics and STEM teachers with little to no experience with Lego Mindstorms EV3 Robotics experience who would like to learn both robotics, STEM integration, application and PBIL pedagogy.

Both synchronous, which means participants must keep to a group schedule, and asynchronous, which allows them to determine their own pace.
