Educational Robotics for all: gender, diversity, and inclusion in STEAM

    As part of this course, you’ll learn about:

  • The value and relevance of including women and other underrepresented groups in engineering education and STEAM careers;
  • Active teaching methods and project-based learning focused on robotics and related STEAM activities;
  • Robotics tools, including the user interface environments of Scratch, Crumble, and Arduino;
  • Concepts that facilitate the deployment of robotics tools in an educational environment; and
  • Methods for student learning management.
    As part of this course, you’ll learn how to:

  • Create simple robotics applications using a variety of instruments;
  • Integrate robotics and related STEAM activities into classroom or online instruction; and
  • Manage this same instruction to present concepts effectively, offer constructive feedback, monitor student progress, and motivate students from underrepresented populations.
