LEGOengineering.com needs your help!
We’re looking for innovative educators with a passion for LEGO robotics to be part of the “EDGE” (LEGO Engineering Developers Group Educators) to help come up with new ideas to support and inspire other teachers and students.
The purposes of the EDGE are…
- to provide feedback about LEGOengineering.com
- to share ideas and resources
- to be inspirational
- to have fun!
Consistent with the aims of LEGOengineering.com, group members will be educators committed to using LEGO MINDSTORMS hardware and software in their classroom to engage students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
Members of the group will participate in discussions, trial new materials (e.g. curriculum, teaching strategies, hardware, software), and create content for LEGOengineering.com.
Approximately 10-15 educators will be selected from across the world and from a range of experiences and from all levels of education. We are looking not only for classroom teachers, but also for other educators such as after-school program coordinators and robotics team mentors.
Participation in the EDGE will be for the remainder of 2014.
The group is an online community, supported by a discussion group, regular online meetings, and perhaps even occasional face-to-face meetings where possible (e.g. LEGO Engineering Conferences, international robotics competitions, professional development workshops).
The aim of LEGOengineering.com is to inspire and support teachers to go beyond the basics in bringing LEGO-based engineering to all students. LEGOengineering.com is developed by the Tufts Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO), with the support of LEGO Education.
REGISTRATIONS FOR EDGE 2014 ARE NOW CLOSED – Stay tuned for future invites to join the EDGE!
