NextWaveSTEM Professional Development for Teachers

Drones, robots, and 3D printers are being used today for a variety of purposes, and these emerging technologies will continue to become even more integral to our society in the years to come. Our Professional Development Workshops are for teachers who are interested in using drones, robots, and 3D printers in the classroom to deliver STEM learning that inspires and sparks students’ curiosity, builds critical thinking, and introduces students to coding skills that are becoming vital as careers continue to shift towards STEM-related fields.

Using robots to Create Engaging STEM Learning Experiences for Students
