Computational Thinking for Middle School Students through the Integration of Graphical Programming and Robotics
- This project seeks to integrate 3D programming and autonomous robotics under the over-arching concept of computational thinking as a means of stimulating interest in computing from underrepresented groups.
- An educational tool that integrates the Alice 3D programming environment with autonomous wheeled robots (with on-board sensing) has been created.
- We are developing the associated curriculum and we will be evaluating this tool through camps organized in Spring-Summer 2012 for middle-school students from local schools.
