LEGO Education and FIRST today unveiled two new robotics sets for the 2019-2020 FIRST LEGO League Season, both themed around architecture.
The new center features fabrication equipment and a full-sized FIRST Robotics field for practice. Among the users will be regional robotics teams, the high school's own robotics club (the "Tractor Technicians"), the middle school robotics club ("Tractor Technicians in Training") and various elementary-level groups.
Content covers coding, engineering design, drones, cybersecurity and mobile app development. In the future, according to the company, curriculum will also cover animation, data analysis and artificial intelligence. The company said the lessons adhere to Next Generation Science Standards.
STEM kit seller Pitsco Education has introduced a new line of robotics and coding products for its K-12 classroom catalog.
Coding competitions drive critical thinking and help students develop workforce skills. Here’s a look inside the recent state finals for the New Hampshire Cyber Robotics Coding Competition, held at the University of New Hampshire campus in Durham.
The lab is used for robotics, coding and computer aided drawing and design lessons, as part of a "STEM micro campus" within the school.
"Swarm" is the theme of a new initiative at West Virginia University, which will run a robotics research experience for undergraduates in the region. Each summer for the next three years, eight undergraduate students — mostly from Appalachia — will be selected to participate in robotics research using real-world problems.
LEGO Education today revealed SPIKE Prime, a hands-on classroom robotics and coding system for grades 6–8.
A Connecticut college has worked with a national IT company to create a robotics center to train workers in the state. Goodwin College in Hartford teamed up with RGBSI to launch a robotics and automation center of excellence, to support education in advanced manufacturing technology.
When two teens were dramatically rescued last year from a rip tide off the eastern shore of Australia by a drone dropping a flotation device into the water, it made apparent what drone pilots have been saying for a long time: Drones have multiple practical uses.
Arizona State University's Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering have introduced a new two-year master's degree program in robotics and autonomous systems. The course of study launched on Jan. 7 and, according to the university, is just one of a handful in the country specializing in the subjects.
North Carolina State University researchers have created 3D-printed soft mesh "robots" that can contract, reshape and grab and release small objects (such as a drop of water or a tiny foil ball) while floating on the water surface.
