Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Tools of the Future!
Scholastic is pleased to give you a sneak preview of a hands-on interactive new curriculum and dynamic robotics kit! The Vex Robotics Design System helps 9th- through 12th-grade students design and build a robot that can perform multiple functions. This kit is supplemented by comprehensive standards-based science, technology, engineering, and math curricula developed by the Robotics Academy at Carnegie Mellon University, Intelitek and more.
We're excited to provide a comprehensive lesson plan along with interactive student worksheets to bring robotics to life in your classroom.
Robotics is the teaching tool of the future. It can change the way your students see the world!
