The goal of the lightning talk session is to provide an opportunity for any conference attendee to share a short, thought-provoking presentation related to educational robotics.
Your lightning talk should pertain to educational robotics, which includes a broad range of topics:
- Team management
- Student Recruitment
- Program Sustainability
- Autonomous Projects
- Novel Instructional Ideas
It should teach us something. It should be entertaining. It should be enjoyable by a wide audience.
We invite you to submit an idea for a lightning talk. Don't be shy! Here's your chance to share your passion with an appreciative audience.
Who can submit a lightning talk?
We invite all Global Conference on Educational Robotics attendees including students, parents, teachers, mentors, aunts and uncles to submit a talk idea!
