Intro to Robotics for Educators:
Coding, Engineering, and AI

Program Robots & Earn Professional Development CEUs

Camp:ASPIRE for Educators is a week-long extended learning session designed for educators to attend a virtual robotics camp and have fun exploring, building and programming robots. Using the same format as Camp:ASPIRE, educators get to experience what it is like to be a student learning engineering skills in a fun, educational and pressure free environment. This camp is a way to learn while having fun – just like what you want your students to do – while earning professional development CEUs.

Intro to Robotics for Educators: Coding, Engineering, and AI

In this one week camp using the UKIT Beginner, educators start by building and programming basic robots to do simple tasks and quickly progress to designing more complex robotic creations. Working in virtual groups, like-minded educators learn the basics of programming and expand computational thinking skills through fun, hands-on exploration, and troubleshooting in the context of real-world scenarios. Educators work towards designing and building their own custom robot while tackling different AI concepts each day. This camp is perfect for educators who want to learn the basics of robotics, coding, AI and think about how to bring fun STEM resources to the classroom while earning CEU professional development hours.

Educators will:

  • Explore basic engineering, coding, AI, and robotics concepts and how they are being used in the real world
  • Use modern tech tools (UKIT app, UKIT robots, online AI tools, computers) 
  • Participate in the engineering design process by iterating on robotic designs 
  • Learn AI fundamentals and introductory concepts by exploring AI applications and resources
  • Think about how to integrate robotics and project based learning into their classroom
  • Gain CEU professional development hours upon completion

Tech Requirements:

  • iOS, Android, or Chromebook device with UKIT EDU app installed
  • Internet-enabled device with webcam, microphone, and Zoom web conferencing ability
  • Reliable internet 

Course Includes:

  • UKIT Beginner robotics kit 
  • Access to virtual camp including five live virtual sessions (2 hours each) and multiple offline activities
