So excited that the Vermont Robot Rodeo Project made it into the  2016 COSN Horizon Report K12 Edition  as Examples of Robotics in Practice!

From the 2016 COSN Horizon Report K12 Edition   on page 41

Robotics in Practice The following links provide examples of robotics in use that have direct implications for K-12 education settings:

It's a short blurb,  
Vermont Robot Rodeo 

Fifty schools across Vermont are participating in the inaugural Vermont Robot Rodeo. Participants can test out a cadre of robots, share best practices and learning strategies, swap robots for various projects, and learn coding basics.

NEW Cubelets are here just in time for this years Robot Rodeo

Welcome to Robot Rodeo 2016-2017

We are getting ready to launch our second  Robot Rodeo
The Robot Rodeo will start in November 2016 and culminate in May 2017 at Vermont's Dynamic Landscape Conference.

Each school who participates will get to train a robot for ONE month. They will be asked to add pictures and movies of their robot's visit to their school.

If you'd like to HOST a Robot,  check out the HOST Schools Tab above and sign UP soon!

We are looking forward to another successful year and have a few new twist to introduce this year.

Robot Rodeo - Spring 2016

Thank you to all the participants and sponsors of our first Annual Robot Rodeo!

As you can see from the video below our first  Rodeo Rodeo was a huge success and we've had lots of request from schools who want to join.  The Robots visited 40 schools last year.    This year  we are hoping to expand the opportunities we can provide to introduce Coding and Robots to Vermont schools.

If you know anyone who would like to to sponsor a Robot to travel around the state to Vermont schools, where students will train it for the 2017 Rodeo, please send this to this page.    Each sponsor purchases the robot of their choice to be added to the fleet of traveling robots.

f you are a school who would like to participate in the 2016 - 2017 year please sign up here.
