Collaboration Leads to Robotics and Coding for All Students to Think about STEM in their Future
Presented by: Mashpee Public Schools
This presentation on robotics and coding will show the true STEM Pipeline, teachers across three schools ranging from PreK-12 have committed to teaching robotics and coding through the cross age student teaching model. Through the use of multiple robotics platforms and different coding/programming languages students are being exposed to robotics and coding. Mashpee has made robotics and coding relevant and engaging for all students through innovative projects and competitive robotics. This model has also allowed Mashpee students to engage with local businesses who have provided individuals to mentor the students in their endeavors. The mentoring opportunities have led to a direct communication of what STEM skills need to be taught in schools to facilitate job ready graduates who can either continue to pursue their learning through higher education or could enter the job force in a related STEM field for example in advanced manufacturing.
