Professional Development

“As I get ready to start this school year, I am thinking about how BirdBrain helped me feel more comfortable with robotics and how I can transfer that to my students.”

- Heather Laurent, STEAM Teacher, Pittsburgh, PA

“Our teachers were able to take what they learned in the hands-on Hummingbird session and put it into practice the next day in their classrooms. Not only did they have the skills to operate the robots, but most importantly they had the confidence and resources to teach it to their students.”

- Chris Champion, Coordinator of Instructional Technology, New Cumberland, PA

“K-12 teachers were blown away by the workshop, excited to dive in, and bring it to their classrooms.”

- Jennifer Mann, Library & Instructional Technology Teacher, Beaverton, OR

“Teachers are inspired and ready to start with technical skills and specific ways to integrate robotics into their classrooms.”

- Tamara Pearson Ph.D., K-12 STEM Outreach - Georgia Tech University, Atlanta, GA
