Creative and Expressive Student Robots

Got this good material from BirdBrain Technologies in my In Box recently... I like BirdBrain's approach as it seems to me to strongly encourage and facilitate the Creative/Expressive aspect of Student Robotics. 


Check out these new interdisciplinary classroom projects with the Hummingbird and Finch!
  • Opera Bots: Students at Springdale Junior/Senior High School in Springdale, PA created robotic dioramas to demonstrate their understanding of Giacomo Puccini's opera, La Bohรจme.
  • Design Thinking and Robotics: At St. Anne's-Belfield School in Charlottesville, VA, students used the Hummingbird in a design challenge focused on the needs of a student with cerebral palsy.
  • Writing and Robotics: This summer camp at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro enabled students to write their own fiction or nonfiction work and then design and build a robot based on their writing.
  • Games with the Finch: Students at Buzz Aldrin Middle School in Montclair, NJ used the Finch to create their own board games.
