Summer Research Experience
An opportunity for teachers to work with scientific researchers, and to apply their research experiences in their classrooms.
Instead of simply telling students about the growth cycle, teachers help elementary school students to actively manipulate soil, worms, seeds, and plants in scientific exploration.
Arts & Bots Project
Combines artistic building, engineering design, and simple computer programming skills to build a three-dimensional art project that the students then animate using simple robotic components.
Students are taught to set up the robotics platform and take photos, employ the stitching software to construct panoramic “Gigapan” images from the photos to display at the Gigapan.com site.
