Learn about GaleForce, an immersive collaborative robotics (co-robotics) 3D Unity game that we are developing as part of our NSF project Girls Immersed in Robotics Learning Simulations (GIRLS) where students program robots and drones to help a community to recover from a hurricane.
|Audience:||Teachers, Teacher education/higher ed faculty, Technology coordinators/facilitators|
|Attendee devices:||Devices not needed|
|Participant accounts, software and other materials:||None. We will bring all equipment necessary.|
|Topic:||Computer science & computational thinking|
|Subject area:||Computer science|
|ISTE Standards:||For Educators:
- Poster viewers will learn about the NSF-funded project GIRLS (Girls Immersed in Robotics Learning Simulations) and about co-robotics.
- Participants will be able to try samples of the curriculum using drones and robots.
We will present our initial co-robotics curriculum for Girls Immersed in Robotics Learning Simulations (GIRLS) and an immersive virtual game in development involving collaborative robotics (co-robotics) where students program robots and drones to help a community to recover from a hurricane.
