FlipRobot Workshops – The Link Between Theory and Practice

At the beginning of this year, Actura wanted to provide a means by which teachers could get a hands-on experience with FlipRobot but in a format that could fit into their busy schedules. From this, Actura developed our FlipRobot 2-Hour Initial Workshop. This workshop was developed to provide teachers with not only practical applications for FlipRobot, but also ideas on how FlipRobot can be used in their classroom.
