The Computer Science Department needs 2 cyber:bot Robot Sets. Students will use these sets to learn physical computing and cybersecurity as a part of the media computation classes (2 @ $3,795 each).
As of 5/15/21, $1,930 has been funded towards the $7,590 needed.
Designed to add a hardware dimension to Python-focused computer science, CTE, and cybersecurity programs, the cyber:bot is a joint project between Parallax and NICERC, the National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center.
Each cyber:bot pack contains 12 robot sets. Each set includes (1) cyber:bot robot kit with micro:bit, plus their three most popular hardware accessories for additional activities. The cyber:bot 12-pack Plus is a one-box solution for implementing Python programming, robotics and other STEM topics in the classroom. The robots are designed to be beginner-friendly and engaging, using real-world electronics to build transferable skills.
