OCTCOWENSBORO, Ky. (5/14/13) – Area teachers are invited to learn how to incorporate STEM robotics into their classrooms during a professional development program planned for next month at Owensboro Community and Technical College.

K-12 teachers who participate will work in groups to design, build and program robots. Participants will gain technics that can be used with students in the classroom as well as those on robotics teams. Robot kits will be available to participating teachers throughout the school year.
