Students learn to program robots to represent the personality, emotions, and struggles of characters in the literature that they read. Close readings of texts, theme, and multiple presentation aspects for characterization will be explored in relation to robotics and block coding. Learn how students can engage in experiences aimed at examining their emotional connection to both literature and technology through the use of robotics.
