ROBOTIC MAKERSPACES @ YOUR LIBRARY: FROM STACKS TO HACKS 
 
Pam Panopalis
 
Thursday, August 31 | 2 - 3 PM 
   
Robotics are linked with STEAM (learning opportunities incorporating science, technology, engineering, arts and math as interdependent disciplines). By endeavoring to blend these subjects, STEAM education seeks to create 21st century leaning opportunities and skills development for all students. However, STEAM learning goes beyond preparing students for 21st century jobs, but rather develops a set of innovate “soft skills” (reasoning, teamwork, and investigative abilities) that students can incorporate in all areas of their lives. Our team would like to incorporate robotics using two approaches. The first, as an after school program designed as a makerspace in our library; the second, as a unit incorporated in the either the science, math, art, or construction curriculum involving both the mainstream and life skills sectors.
