We just had a video call with the Thailand Terrabotic team and were very impressed with the excellent work going on! A number of school years are involved in the robotics program and it was great to see some functioning robots from each cohort, accompanied by a few very impressive presentations. We’re looking forward to seeing the Thailand team get started on the US and Canadian challenges and devise some challenges of their own.

Now that all of our teams have their robots mostly functional, we’ll be sending out some additional equipment to give the students even more options when customizing their robots.

Video Science

For those who are tuning in for the first time, Video Science is a collection of short videos of science demonstrations designed to serve as your digital colleague and science teaching companion. VideoScience is hosted by Dan Menelly, Education Advisor to the Science House Foundation. Dan Menelly is a science teacher at the United Nations International School in New York City and a 2010 Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship, working with the National Science Foundation in the Office of Cyberinfrastructure.

Dan Menelly returns to New York soon from a lecturing tour in Europe to film more episodes!
