Python and Robots: Teaching Programming in High School

A session at PyCon US 2011

Friday 11th March, 2011

4:55pm to 5:25pm (EST)

Combining Python with inexpensive robots is a very effective way of teaching programming at the middle and high school levels. Since Python is easy to understand a constructivist approach is possible - students learn by creating and running simple programs, observing the results, and then modifying their code to fix bugs and add functionality.
