TSN is piloting, in partnership with MassRobotics, a project-based middle-school vehicular robot design and develop program. The goal is to improve students’ confidence in technology exploration, at a developmental age in which Black and Latinx students become disenfranchised with STEM courses. Curricula will be designed to introduce students to technical design concepts utilizing the SPHERO RVR to learn coding syntax, asynchronous programming, mathematic concepts implementation, and customization of an all-terrain vehicular robot.
TSN invested in the TSN Academy distance learning platform. This interactive platform hosts a variety of features aimed at creating a singular instruction and learning site destination. Additionally as part of our commitment to project based programming and elevating student learning TSN will supply all students with material kits including a SPHERO RVR and art and design supplies while utilizing their BPS assigned Chromebook devices.
TSN Academy features include:
- Video conferencing infrastructure
- Design Notebook
- Homework Upload capabilities
- Digital Badging
- Students engagement tracking
- Reporting metrics infrastructure
