Increasing Engagement in STEM ~ Teaching Coding through Gamification
Kathleen Dasho, Kathleen Dasho, North Reading, and Graham Celine, Intelitek
* 
Level: Beginner
Grades: K-5, 6-8, 9-12
North Reading was a pilot user of CoderZ and online platform to teach coding using 3D robotic simulation. Kathy Dasho will explain the how this played out and the advantages of a virtual robotics solution. This year Kathy has expanded from her Robotics Club to use the gamified app for her High School Robotics Class. CoderZ is a fun, interactive, online platform that is unique in that it focuses on the most sought-after STEM profession " Coding. In 2017, Intelitek launched the Cyber Robotics Coding Competition in New Hampshire using the same teaching platform. Graham Celine from Intelitek will show how this learning platform can be used to motivate students to get into STEM. CoderZ has succeeded to scale robotics and expand the inclusiveness and diversity or STEM classes.

A Rubric For District Robotics Success: A Buyer's Guide & Hands On Guide
Kathleen Dasho, Kathleen Dasho, North Reading, and Daniel Downs, North Reading District
* 
Level: Beginner
Grades: All
Looking to invest in robotics for your district? This presentation will provide participants with a hands-on buying guide to help review the largest robotics platforms: Lego EV3, VEX EDR, VEX IQ, Raspberry Pi and Tetrix platforms with a hands on demonstration of their different building options, required programming skills and controller capabilities. In addition to these platforms a range of low cost options for elementary robotics will also be discussed and shown such as the Edison, Ozobot, Sphero and Bee-Bot platforms. Leave this presentation informed on the features of these platforms and a rubric to help you select robotics platforms based on your educational and financial goals. This presentation will also highlight the essential 21st Century Skills and Computer Science skills that robotics bring to a students learning. View classroom videos, robotics challenges and experience these platforms for yourself.
