Robotics and other applications of coding skills are rich opportunities for students to engage their mental practices with a variety of contexts.  The MSEC offers a collection of LEGO and other robotics available for teacher checkout for a semester at a time. 

Why use robotics in the classroom?  Students will encounter a variety of places in their lives where robots are commonplace, including in retail, service, and healthcare sites.  Several bots are available for classroom use, including bots for K-5 up through competitive bots for high school.
