The RoboCoast Immersion Day really set a number of balls rolling with my class and our school last year. For myself, it gave me a new area of digital technology exploration to pursue. Through the Immersion Day and the level of skills I gained, I was able to develop small programs to do with my class.

The RoboCoast Immersion Day was a vital step that set up a whole plethora of learning opportunities for myself, my class and our school. Such a valuable experience.
