Abstract

Coding and robotics activities have traditionally been used with secondary students and often in after school programs. Seldom have these disciplines been a part of the mainstream curriculum and even more rare is having these be a part of the instructional programs for learners in the primary grades. Research conducted with primary education teachers has demonstrated the potential impact of including coding and robotics content integrated with traditional mathematics, science, social studies, and English language arts instruction. This research also suggests teacher preparation needs to begin early for STEM education.
