Training Descriptions

Note:  All Master Training courses review the application of computational thinking skills, fundamental pedagogical practices, facilitative teaching and coaching skills, and collaborative learning techniques.

TREC Trainings

TREC 1-6, On-Ramp

Check Eligible for Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy Certificate

Platforms: ROBOTC VEX IQ,
LEGO EV3 MINDSTORMS

This training will prepare teachers for the instruction of Robotics courses 1-5 or 1-3.  Teachers will be led through the introductory course where they will learn about how a robot senses, plans, and acts.

Topics

  • Pedagogy and Computational Thinking
  • Basic review of robotics kits
  • Engineering process
  • Simple machines
  • Robotic builds
  • Geometry
  • Distance-rate problems
  • Virtual worlds
  • Robotic sensors
  • Basic and advanced programming challenges
  • Repeated decisions (looped conditionals)
  • Variable tracking
  • Data logging

TREC On-Ramp, 6-7

Check Eligible for Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy Certificate

Platforms: ROBOTC VEX IQ,
ROBOTC LEGO EV3

This training begins with a brief overview of TREC 1-5 which covers fundamental programming concepts and basics robotics.  Training will also revolve around facilitation of the engineering design process and the foundational skills necessary to transition from block based programming to text based language.

Topics

  • Pedagogy and Computational Thinking
  • Brief overview of TREC 1-5
  • Fundamental programming concepts
  • Basic Robotics
  • Engineering design process
  • Walk through of real world engineering challenges
  • Block based programming
  • Text based language

TREC 8-10

Check Eligible for Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy Certificate

Platforms: ROBOTC VEX IQ,
ROBOTC LEGO EV3

This training is designed around developing automated solution to real world problems and focuses on advanced programming concepts and engineering projects that require data abstractions of substantial complexity, concepts of industrial design, electronics, programming and connectivity.

Topics

  • Pedagogy and Computational Thinking
  • Advanced programming concepts
  • Engineering projects
  • Complex date manipulation
  • Second level engineering challenges
  • Complex programming and robotic designs
  • “Internet of Things”

IDEAS Trainings

IDEAS 1-4

Check Eligible for Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy Certificate

Platforms: Scratch 2.0

This training will prepare teachers for the instruction of IDEAS 1-4. This Master Teacher Training will provide direction to teachers as they to transition from block-based to text-based programming. The training begins with a review of the basics of computers, parts, and functions along with an introduction to software applications for drawing, communication and animation using Scratch’s blocked based programming. They will apply these skills in Robomatter’s Resolvers game.

Topics

  • Pedagogy and Computational Thinking
  • Review of basic computers, parts and functions
  • Program animations
  • Block-based programming through Scratch
  • Game design and creation
  • Internet and cybersecurity
  • Code writing
  • Algorithmic and statistical applications

IDEAS CU, 5-6

Check Eligible for Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy Certificate

Platforms: Scratch 2.0, Sandbloqs

The IDEAS CU(catch up) course provides an overview of skills taught in IDEAS 1-4.   Additionally, the training will provide the foundational skills necessary to transition from block-based programming to text-based programming using Sandbloqs.  The training will also focus on the fundamentals of computational thinking and iteration as a means of developing computational artifacts.

Topics

  • Pedagogy and Computational Thinking
  • Structures of programming concepts
  • Block-based programming through Sandbloqs
  • Transition from block-based to text-based coding
  • Object-oriented thinking
  • Computational thinking
  • Development of computational artifacts
  • Object-oriented programming
