Arts & Bots

Arts & Bots is a middle school robotics program which combines standard robotics components, craft materials, a storyboard-based programming environment, and teacher training to integrate robotics into non-technical courses. By integrating robotics into required core classes like history, and English, we can engage a broader group of students than an elective class or an extracurricular. In Arts & Bots, robotics is used as a novel medium to engage students within the subject. Simultaneously, robotics is contextualized through that course content and made relevant for students not interested in “technology for technology’s sake”.
