*LEGO Mindstorms Robots for STEM Education by Charles Lord, Rodney Radford
+ Jetbot Robot using NVIDIA Jetson Nano by Dr. Paul MacDougal*
------------------------------
*Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics(STEM) are simple when
there is enough interest and understanding on the subject matter.*

To emphasize this key message which is an eminent noble task, *Charles Lord*
will talk about and walkthrough effective methods of using LEGO mindstorms
robots for STEM motivational education in every level of academic
institutions.  *Rodney Radford* will be helping on the demonstration part
of the talk.  It is interesting to note, Lego Mindstom Nxt has opensource
components abstracting a simple but efficient embedded systems - providing
easy to use SDK(Software Development Kit), HDK(Hardware Development Kit)
and BDK(Bluetooth Development kit) along with multiple programming
languages including C, Python, Matlab, Ada, Lua & graphical NXT-G.

*Dr. Paul MacDougal* will present about Jetbot robot using NVIDIA Jetson
Nano.  NVIDIA Jetson Nano is an affordable System On Modue(SOM) with CPU,
GPU, Power Management IC, DRAM & Flash - a Maxwell architecture with 128
NVIDIA CUDA cores for performance and power efficiency to run autonomous
machines, faster with less power. It is interesting to note, Jetbot has a
Robot Operating System(ROS) port along with a model for Gazebo Robotics
Simulator.
