Dr. Campbell recently received word that she has received a grant from Evonik’s Partners in Education Grants. The grant money will be issued for next school year. The grants is:
Mini-Engineering: The Science of Robotics - The teaching of robotics based on the LEGO building systems and programming software is an invaluable medium for the teaching of science and thinking skills from early years of primary school through mid and later years of secondary education to tertiary education. The building of LEGO models involves the whole spectrum of physics and associated scientific principles. The models replicate the reality of the underlying principles of science, and thus the compound issues faced by engineers to satisfy the needs of an ever increasingly complex human society. Robotics in education is truly mini-engineering. Students in this grant will be teamed in Engineering Honors students at Purdue University to build and program mini-robots.
