Part 3 - Learning Python with pi-top: Conditionals & Loops

Why did the turtle cross the road? Well, probably to attend our Python session… but what’s more important is HOW the turtle gets to the other side of the road. Session three of Learning Python with the pi-top is all about control flow. We’ll show you how to use a classic computer programming application called Turtle Art (hint: it comes pre-installed on your pi-top). Join us to gather resources for teaching control flow with the pi-top that includes turtles and so much more! 

Creating Your Own STEAM Makerspace Program: Ideas & Considerations

Were you unable to attend our session at ISTE 2018? Well, here it is! Makerspaces are becoming cornerstones of schools’ STEAM offerings. From low-tech buildable options to high-tech coded 3D prints, and some things in between, we’ve got a session to help you figure out what’s right for your solution. Bring your imagination and flex your creative muscles!

Welcome to NAO 2.1.4: Part 4 - Interactive Programs

Welcome back to the world of NAO robotics! In this session, we begin creating interactive functions that use the touch sensors, microphones, and cameras on the NAO robot. Participants will continue to learn new elements of programming logic and language embedded into Choregraphe, and see how they can be used to create deeper programming tasks for their students.

Program a Story with NAO

The NAO Robot is an exciting educational tool that not only teaches students the basics of computer programming, through the accompanying software Choregraphe, but is also an ultimate educational tool that can serve as a platform to encourage group work, scripting, storyboarding, and much much more. Join us as we go through programming a story with the NAO Robot. This activity will have students working in groups, scripting out a multi-ending story and then programing the NAO Robot. Learn how we can incorporate crucial literacy skills and pair it with the computer programing component of Choregraphe.
