Workshops -- Schedule One at Your Site

We would love to work with you to arrange something appropriate to your situation. We've done workshops that were 4 hours, 1 day, 3 days, 1 week and 2 weeks. The cost depends on the materials we provide (ranging from a breadboard controller to full robots), the number of participants, and the extent to which we need to customize the workshop. Let's talk about what would be best for you. -- fred.thomas@mathmachines.net.

The classroom facilitation process used in these workshops is in close alignment with the National Science Education Standards (National Research Council, 1996) which calls for developing "abilities of technological design" that include problem identification, consideration of alternate solutions, implementation, evaluation, and communication.

Control system activities are very closely aligned with the NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2000) which emphasize the importance of helping students learn to apply mathematical problem-solving techniques in contexts outside the mathematics classroom.
