Co-Robots

The C-STEM Center’s NSF funded research program, Co-Robots, studies how to use co-robot systems and math-oriented co-robotics competitions to enhance student engagement, increase students’ motivation in learning Algebra and subsequent STEM subjects, and interest in pursuing STEM related careers and post-secondary study. Teachers are engaged in a two week (8 hours / day) summer program on integrating computing and robotics into the classroom.  Through the academic year followup, the C-STEM Center works with researchers and teachers to develop innovative co-robot technology and curricula to transform math and science education by integrating computing, robotics, and engineering into K-12 education.

C-STEM+

The Yolo County Office of Education (YCOE) in partnership with the UC Davis C-STEM Center received a $1.5 million over three years from the California Department of Education for the C-STEM+ Project.  The project provides intensive and follow-up training in mathematics, technology, and engineering.  The project represents both a countywide professional development model with all five Yolo County school districts participating and a regional model including rural, suburban, and urban high need school districts serving students in Region 3. Over fifty highly qualified teachers in grades 6-12 are recruited to participate in the project.

PRISM

This project entitled “Programming and Robotics Integrated with Science and Mathematics (PRISM)” is funded with $1.8 million dollars for three years by the California Department of Education, through a partnership with Solano County Office of Education (SCOE). The project provides intensive and follow-up training in mathematics, technology, engineering, and science. The project represents both a countywide professional development model and a regional model including rural, suburban, and urban high need school districts. We are recruiting over sixty highly qualified math, physical science or math-based Career Technical Education teachers to participate in the project.

With the funding from the National Science Foundation, California Department of Education, and other funding sources, the C-STEM Center has been actively conducting the research on integrated learning of Computing and STEM subjects. We study how integrating computing and robotics into STEM education in both formal and informal programs will affect student motivation and outcome, especially for  traditionally underrepresented and economically disadvantaged groups and at-risk students.

Through the course of our research,we have developed innovative educational computing and robotics technology and Common Core Math Standards compliant curriculum and teaching strategies, such as dual programming, unique professional development model for training teachers without any prior computer programming and robotics experience, for integrating computer programming, robotics, and engineering into math education with a focus on Algebra stand to help close the achievement gap and prepare students to be career and college ready.  We also study how the success of the curriculum-based RoboPlay Competition on the C-STEM Day impact students’ motivation and learning.

 

The article “Teaching math with computer programming can help narrow achievement gap” summarizes the current work of the C-STEM on integrating computing into K-12 math education.

Department Description: 

The UC Davis Center for Integrated Computing and STEM Education (C-STEM) is housed in the UC Davis College of Engineering. C-STEM is a UC Approved Educational Preparation Program for Undergraduate Admission to all UC campuses. C-STEM has  UC A-G Program Status with A-G approved rigorous courses for UC/CSU admission. The C-STEM Center aims to improve computing, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (C-STEM) education in both formal and informal programs in K-14 through integrated learning. The goal of the C-STEM Center is to provide computing education for all K-12 students and develop students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills through integrated mathematics education. The C-STEM Center works with several hundreds of K-12 schools with annual subscriptions with over 10,000 students in US and other countries using C-STEM Math-ICT curriculum in their formal classroom teaching and learning. The annual C-STEM Day with RoboPlay Challenge Competition by the end of May each year is a culminating event for the C-STEM program. In 2016, more than 130 teams participated in the RoboPlay Challenge Competition at UC Davis and Orange County, CA organized by the C-STEM Center staff and over 150 industrial and student volunteers. The C-STEM Center provides various professional developments for K-14 teachers on integrated computing and STEM education in various regions by C-STEM staff or through the C-STEM Train-the-Trainer Affiliate Program. The C-STEM Center also organizes the Girls in Robotics Leadership (GIRL) camps in the summer in different regions nationwide through the C-STEM GIRL Affiliate Program. The GIRL camps are focused on motivating girls in middle school through peer mentoring to learn STEM concepts through a fun and exciting robotics-based C-STEM GIRL Camp curriculum. The Center, under the directorship of Professor Harry Cheng, has several staff, graduate and undergraduate students and collaborates working closely with numerous education, technology and industrial partners and volunteers.
