S.P.A.R.K. beginer robotics resources

spark

We love to see educational resources appear. iRobot has put together Starter Programs for Advancement of Robotics Knowledge or S.P.A.R.K to serve as not only education, but amusement with the purpose of getting people interested in robotics. With sections divided into different grade levels, it is obvious that this is mainly meant for school aged kids. There are some games as well to keep them amused when they need a break. We looked around a little bit and it seems that they are still fleshing it out. We hope to see some structured content specifically created for education of youngsters. Right now it is mainly links to other resources.

    interesting use of the roomba.

    also, interesting spelling of beginner http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/beginner

    beginer – perhaps the one who pours gin on another?
    begined – to have gin poured over you
    begin – either to start an activity or to pour gin on someone or something.

    I know that they have been working hard to get all of this together and it is still in beta. Given time and support I’m sure this will be another good resource.
