This week I am attending a 4 1/2 day robotics workshop at Carnegie Mellon University, studying how to teach center university robotics with the “Lego Spike Prime” robotic system. This is based on the Scratch programming language from MIT, which I adore and have been utilizing for around 10 yrs. In this podcast reflection (from my “Class with Dr. Fryer” channel on Anchor) I share some of the things I have learned from the initial two days of the workshop, as nicely as some of the wonderful DARPA robotic jobs, prototypes, and other robotics initiatives housed in the National Robotics Engineering Center, at CMU, where this workshop is becoming held. Check out out the shownotes (underneath) for links to my Google Doc of notes and other similar sources!
