Robots are a part of our everyday lives. We use them in ways we don't always realize. What are robots, how are they used in our lives and how are they used by NASA? These are just some of the questions answered in this webshop. Using NASA STEM robotics missions, curriculum and activities, we'll also explore how to use robotics, inexpensively, in your classroom to enhance your students' understanding of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Materials Needed (optional, if participating in activities along with presenter):
2 (12oz or 16oz) styrofoam cups, plastic picnic knife, @ 36cm of cotton string or yarn, cellophane tape, scissors, 30cm ruler

Expected Outcomes:
Develop a basic understanding of robotics. Explore the critical role robotics plays in NASA's exploration of Earth, our solar system and beyond. Participate in robotics classroom activities that will enhance STEM curriculum.
