Last week, D&D Automation extended an invitation to to grade 7/8 teachers and students to attend D&D Automation for a half day workshop filled with hands on learning.
Two half day sessions were held each day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The students were split into groups and rotated around three different stations, each with their own unique challenge or demonstration. Students went through programming challenges using Lego Mindstorm kits, learned how to operate and program a 6-axis industrial robot, and tackled a challenge course involving Nerf guns and a laser-tracking robot.
For the teachers, D&D offered seminars that explored different ways to incorporate coding into their classrooms.
D&D also hosts an annual Battle of the Bots challenge course for classes who are interested in coding and robotics.
