Professional Development Training

Foundations in Engineering, Technology, and Robotics – Module 1

STEM Education Works provides authentic, industry-aligned learning experiences to cultivate the practical technical competencies and employability skills necessary for student success within regional workforce ecosystems. The curriculum offers a truly integrative approach to meeting desired standards through an engineering design-based pedagogy model which enables expert-to-novice educators to teach vital capabilities in programing, robotics, automation, electronics, logistics, supply chain management, engineering design, and innovation.

Whether you have a background in technology or you’re just getting started, this course will help you integrate engineering, coding and robotics into the classroom, makerspace, or your afterschool program.

This training uses a hands-on, collaborative approach for implementing the STEM Education Works Module 1 Curriculum – Foundations in Engineering, Technology, and Robotics, in conjunction with the DOBOT Magician robotic arm. By the end of the training, you will have the confidence and proficiency to implement this curriculum and technology in your individual program.

Our affordable and valuable professional development training also features ed tech experts and educators as guest speakers, a tour through a local manufacturing plant to see robotics in action, as well as a variety of engaging after-hours experiences! Our small group setting allows for more one-on-one individualized learning experiences. Lunches are provided each day.
