School Visit: ROBOTS & DRONES!

This fun STEM/STEAM presentation begins with an overview of modern robots and helpful drones and the books Shanda was inspired to make because of them! She’ll read aloud one of her books, Doll-E 1.0 or T-Bone the Drone (depending on the grade level) and then demonstrate how to draw (step-by-step) one of the robotic characters. Lastly, she’ll answer questions and challenge students to design their own robot or drone after the presentation!
