NASA STEM: Robotics for K-12 Learners
NASA employees will describe how robots are preparing the way for humans to live and work on the Moon and on Mars someday. They will also explain the importance of introducing students to robotics and engineering at a young age to build up and reinforce a strong STEM pipeline. And they will also demonstrate several NASA engineering activities and resources that you can utilize in your STEM classrooms.
This is a 3 part NASA seminar series designed specifically for educators and administrators. Confirmed speakers include Kurt Leucht, NASA Software Engineer & Roboticist, along with Dr. Samuel Garcia, NASA STEM Education Specialist.
This first webinar, NASA STEM: Robotics for K-12 Learners (Part 1), introduces the audience to robotics, gives examples in everyday life, gives a history of robotic exploration of the Moon and Mars, and describes NASA’s future plans for robotic and human exploration of both the Moon and Mars.
