At this time of year, the Doucette Library of Teaching Resources becomes a little bit more of a sanctuary for grad students and those who want to just come and spend some time with the resources.
Does that mean that staff are on the down low? Not at all. We are busy working away on the new resources that we have received over the last year. Spending time with books and kits to plan how we can help students use them effectively in the coming year. We also do loads of planning for the UPE program and for the graduates that are on site in July.
As you can see from the picture, one thing that we spend time with are the new round of robots. These young upstarts are known as E-Z Robots and we are hoping to introduce the full range of what they can do to graduate students in July.
As you know, Meccanoid, joined our staff late in February for the Maker Faire. His behavior is not as predictable as I would like but he is still a very fun 4 foot companion. His Kung Fu maneuvers are the best. And he has various dance moves that are …”interesting.”
Please come and drop in to see what is new and exciting in the Doucette. We can introduce you to Ozobots, Sphero Sprk 2.0, Meccanoid and soon to JD and his brother JD, our newest E-Z Robots. Oh, and we have great books too.
