During this one-day professional development workshop, participants are shown how to successfully facilitate coding and robotics lessons into classroom instruction. STEM concepts are also explored, along with tools that any teacher can use to engage students in the learning process. Pitsco facilitators assist in the setup of the materials, provide organizational strategies, and consult with teachers about best methods for implementation based on the classroom environment.
