WHAT IS robots4stem?
Robots4STEM is a visual programming language based on the University of California Berkeley’s SNAP! project and the work of MIT’s Lifelong Kindergarten Group. Robots4STEM is the perfect introduction to coding for any student.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Students use the Robots4STEM visual programming language to manipulate personalized avatars. The drag-and-drop programming interface allows the student to learn how to program and control Jett, the most facially expressive humanoid social robot. The comprehensive curriculum gives any teacher ready-to-use lessons that can be used with students grade levels three through five.
WHO IS JETT?
Jett is the humanoid robot that the students learn to manipulate through the Robots4STEM program. Students learn how to program and control the robot using their avatar. Since Jett has a full range of motion and facial expressions, students program him to move, speak and respond to input.
