Posted 27 Mar 2009 at 13:45 UTC by mwaibel Share This

Children love robots. And using robots for education of children of all ages has become increasingly popular. Following a previous episode on robot toys, the latest episode of the Robots podcast focuses on the direct benefits of using robots for education. We first speak to Chris Rogers, professor at Tufts University and developer of ROBOLAB, a framework for using LEGO Mindstorms. Chris shares more than a decade of experience in classrooms teaching students of all ages, including some practical tips and examples to get teachers and parents started. In the second part we are joined by Liz Herron, who runs the unique LEGO Education Center in Texas. She talks about her hands-on experience with kids and robots at the center and gives some examples of the amazingly creative solutions children come up with. Tune in!
