Event Details

Join Christa Fairman and Kathy Scott from CoderZ as they share how educators are using virtual robotics and coding to achieve incredible outcomes. TCEA members will learn how to create an inclusive environment that empowers students to engage in robotics no matter what their experience level, all the while ensuring that teachers are set up for success, even if they have never taught coding before. And, like everyone connected to teaching and learning, Christa and Kathy are working with schools and teachers as they navigate the complexities of hybrid and remote learning. This is why schools taking a virtual approach to coding and robotics are finding that their students and teachers are ready for anything.
