JCET works with Northwest Indian College

Intergenerational Search for "Martian Ice"

July 15, 2016 8:31 AM

Dr. Hoban and Northwest Indian College Professor Gary Brandt gave a week-long workshop entitled "Family-friendly Programming" to educators from Native American schools near Bellingham, Wa, June 20-24. The goal of this workshop was to encourage intergenerational learning in Native American families.  The content was designed around the concept of an autonomous search-and-discovery mission to Mars. Participants used Lego EV3 robot kits with various sensors to program autonomous rovers to search for “ice” on a Martian-analog landscape. Twelve educators and four NWIC students participated in this NASA-MUREP supported workshop.
