Project Summary:

Knowledge if coding is essential in the 21st century. Teaching coding through interactions with robotics can make the subject accessible to secondary school students, and Mech is a programming language that makes coding a highly learnable and teachable skill.  This project has been developing as education outreach program using Mech called Forward Robotics and researching ways to implement it into middle school systems.
