Optional Unit Extension

Close the unit with a “Future Opportunities Expo”. This can be done in the following ways depending on the resources available:

  • Have a virtual “Future Opportunities Expo”
    • Interested students research future job opportunities in robotics related industries and share their findings with their classmates through Smart Board presentations or at computer stations.
  • If your school already hosts a job fair, include robotics related industries and make them highly visible by clustering them in one location.
  • Based on student interest and resources available, invite companies to the school on specified days throughout the unit to present what they do and inform students about future opportunities and hiring criteria.
