FREE Robotics Workshops for Teachers, Students, and Parents from Microsoft

From my In Box - Looks like a great learning opportunity! :)...

Building Flex Sensors
Join us any Saturday in May for a hands-on STEM learning experience at your local Microsoft Store*.
Teachers, students, and parents are welcome to drop by the store to participate in this 30-minute project-based learning experience. The project is designed for 11- to 14-year-old students but can easily be completed by younger students with parental support. 
  • By the end of the experience, participants will have learned:
    How to build a flex sensor that lets them control a robotic finger with their own finger.
    How to use a Surface and Excel to visualize the flexion and extension of their finger. 
    Basic skills typically used by mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, and data scientists. 
The sensor and robotic finger are just two activities from the Building Machines That Emulate Humans lesson plan. All lesson plans and activities are available at

*Times and availability vary by location
