Watch: Middle School Teachers Learning at the GRASP Lab
During the summer of 2016, the GRASP Lab at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences hosted 10 middle school math and science teachers from the School District of Philadelphia. The teachers spent more than six weeks learning about and conducting research in the field of robotics while developing curriculum that could be applied in their classrooms in order to inspire and develop engineering and computer science skills in their students. Three of those teachers and their experiences in the program, are represented here. Funding for the Robotics Research Experience for Teachers program comes from the National Science Foundation. More information is available at the GRASP Lab, Technically Philly and the Penn Current.
