NASA Education Robotics Resource

The topic of our newest DIY Podcast module is Robots. You’ll find a lot of information, links, images and downloadable audio and video clips in the module. But there’s another resource that may help your students when they’re researching robots and developing their podcast scripts. The NASA Education Robotics Web site  is a central location for robotics-related educational products and opportunities, videos and interactive modules.


The site includes information about the STS-131 space shuttle mission scheduled to launch in April 2010. Dottie Metcalf-Lindenburger, an educator and mission specialist, is a robotic arm operator on STS-131. The robotics site features video messages for students and teachers from Metcalf-Lindenburger. The site also includes an image gallery students can use to enhance their podcasts about robots.
