iRobot Corp. will host the Stream 2009 workshop for robotics education June 25-26 at its headquarters in Bedford, MA, U.S. In partnership with the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council and the University of Massachusetts Lowell, iRobot has designed the workshop to expose educators to the many ways robotics can act as a tool for their instruction related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

At the workshop, K-12 educators will participate in sessions and attend presentations given by their peers currently utilizing robots to successfully teach STEM subjects. Representatives from Massachusetts-based technology companies will also discuss career opportunities that exist for students interested in working in the robotics field or other STEM industries.

Strea, 2009 is a component of iRobot’s larger initiative dedicated to fostering elementary, middle and high school students’ interest in STEM subjects.

In addition to the interactive sessions, iRobot is also subsidizing the cost of iRobot Create robots for interested educators. iRobot Create is a preassembled mobile robot platform that allows educators, students and developers to program behaviors, sounds and movements and add additional electronics.
