About this Grantee

To increase their reading comprehension and technology skills, students in Ms. Dysart and Ms. Stephens’ language arts class engage in a multidisciplinary study of robotics. Students read Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot and examine literary allusion and the collection’s three laws of robots. Working with a scholar in residence, students study the theory and practice of robotics and learn to program biomorphic robots. At the culmination of their study, students compose an essay linking the laws of robotics with the world’s ethical systems.
