Professor, Dr. Giri Narasimhan and Instructor, Gregory Reis have run a professional development program for teachers in the K12 educational system in South Florida for over 3 years. The goal of this program is to train teachers on multiple robotics platforms, such as Sphero, VEX IQ and Arduino, so they can incorporate these robotics platforms and programming tools into their class curriculum, enhancing the learning of STEAM.
