Robot Rescue Responder: Learning Robot Programming through Playing Computer Games


[Date: November 2014] The game system was demonstrated at the Math and fun fair on Saturday November 22, 2014. In our estimates more than 250 childrenvisited our game stand, and a good percentage of these children played the game. The ages spanned the entire K-12 range. Many of the children enjoyed game, and some were curious about the code behind it, so we showed the code and explained how it worked.


[Date: November 2014] The game system was tested by a class at Edina Public High School on Thursday November 20, 2014. A total of 31 high school students participated in the event under the supervision of Mr. Ward Jensen. The event was a success, and overall feedback was that students really enjoyed it. We thank Edina High for their support.
