As for the training, we had two intense days of Hummingbird Robotics training and if you're not familiar with it I definitely recommend checking it out. I have added some pictures, videos, and links below so be sure to check them out if you want more information on this product. A little background about the Hummingbird product, a guy by the name of Tom was the originator of Hummingbird however it was designed at Carnagie Melon University CREATE LAB. The hummingbird can be a basic introduction to programming/coding OR you can take it a step further and use a Raspberry PI to make it a bit more challenging for students. We learned a lot about the design and background of the Hummingbird as well as built a robot to use our Hummingbird with (I won't share those pictures, I'll save you and us the shame). It was a wonderful couple of days filled with lots of information and some great conversations with educators and designers from around the nation. This product is slowly making it's way into Ohio but has become huge in Pennsylvania as well as Atlanta.
