CTE Robotics Vision: A STEM Platform
Why Robotics?
 Approachable
• Familiarity of LEGO & ease of programming
• Appealing to multiple learning styles
• Quick and tangible results (Fun Factor)
 Extendable
• Continuum of FIRST Competitions
• Leverage of prior learning throughout
• Breadth and depth of Engineering specialties and STEM content
 Malleable
• Meet student’s needs “where they are at”
• Meet teacher’s needs through robust, yet flexible, curriculum
• Meet school’s needs through multiple course models
 STEM Robotics 101 developed on OSD Moodle server

Wishlist for NSF NWDCSD & Ensemble
 NWDCSD requested STEM Robotics 101 for K-12 Outreach
 Robotics = “Stealth Computer Science for the Masses”
 Level 1: Productize
 Host material outside Olympia School District servers
 Fund porting of existing content & develop missing content
 Co-developers identified in Hillsboro (Domes) and TESC (Weiss)
 Level 2: Customize
 Curriculum Customization tools
 One size does NOT fit all
 Level 3: Socialize
 Teacher Collaboration tools
 Rate/Tag/Comment-upon content
 Curriculum embellishments and additions
 Ensemble team agreed to implement all features
6
Current Status:
 Level 1: Productize
 PSU (Portland State) Ensemble team hosting and developing site
 STEMRobotics site on line
 Supports multiple course models (see Appendix)
 OSD-based STEM Robotics 101 course fully implemented
 Ongoing user interface improvements
 Level 2: Customize

Appendix: PSU Ensemble Vision
 The Portland State University Ensemble team is interested in data
modeling for curricular materials.
 STEM Robotics 101 (and other courses) consist of instructional elements
with descriptive metadata in various structures/models.
 STEM Robotics 101 will also appear in the Ensemble web site:
http://computingportal.org
 Users can construct courses using the various models or create new
models. (see next slide)
 The PSU repository software can host educational content for topics
other than Robotics.
 If you have questions or you would like to create a non-Robotics course
repository (with their software), please contact:
britell@cs.pdx.edu or lmd@cs.pdx.edu
