Teaching robotic fundamentals with recycled electronic products to make robotics affordable for every school.
Hi George, Yes I do enjoy robotics but I also believe there is a great deal that can be learned from B.E.A.M. style robotics. Traditional robotic curriculum is very expensive and requires the instructors to have much more training, especially in the programming realm in order to assist students. In the simpler systems, it is far easier to follow and develop a skill set than the software driven systems. J

Hi Steve, I believe there is more to be learned from basic robotics than the expensive kit form. I personally believe that the expensive software based kits do more for teaching students about how to follow instructions rather than focusing on how or why they work. The simpler approach asks the students to select a life form they wish to create, then think about the behaviors they would like to imitate. When the kids are done they know far more about their robots than the kids who buy the expensive kids do about their own. J
