Robotics is poised to be among one of the most prevalent and important disciplines in the near future. As the world becomes more tech-focused, employees in any discipline will be expected to have some level of STEM education so early adoption of STEM can be a huge advantage children as they grow up. As expected, STEM-Based Teaching/ Education has become a high-demand skill in the industry and Trained Robotics Instructors are unavailable/ low in supply.  Therefore if you are an experienced, new or aspiring teacher and looking to broaden your teaching experiences to include Robotics education or just want to add this to your skillset, take advantage of this course before we are at class capacity.  This class is ideal of professionals studying or with a Bachelors of Education, Education Assistant, or ECE holders looking for opportunities within the Technology Education domain.

In our 25-hour, two-week, part-time, and evening course for teachers, participants will learn how to teach Robotics and Programming Fundamentals to Elementary and Middle School Students. After completing all learning outcomes of the course, participants will receive a certificate in Robotics Education for Elementary and Middle School Students. This class will have a maximum of 12 participants per class and taught by trained computer science students and current Robotics instructors.
