THE ROBOTICS ACADEMY OF NEVADA
Thanks to the generous, ongoing support of Tesla and Nevada Gold Mines, the Robotics Academy of Nevada (RAN) event is a multiday teacher training for educators to become robotics coaches and to increase teacher confidence to bring more CS-STEM robotics into the classrooms. Teachers experience training workshops in a variety of robotics platforms, learning the fundamentals of designing, building, and programming a robot. In addition to hands-on workshops, participants attend speaker sessions with local robotics/CS-STEM professionals, educators, and experts. The training event is a great opportunity to network with local robotics coaches and educators – new and experienced.
THE RAN’S GOAL
The goal of the Robotics Academy of Nevada is to empower our educators to inspire, facilitate, and support robotics education at their schools and to integrate robotics and CS-STEM education into the classroom setting.
I have found that I LOVE anything put on by DRI. It is always organized, effective, and informational. I feel the food and snacks helped with the “AWE, you care about us” factor.
