Rhode Island School of the Future
The Rhode Island School of the Future is a Rhode Island non-profit organization dedicated to helping schools improve the "lifelong" learning skills of their students and to supporting teachers in this endeavor. The goal of the Rhode Island Robotics Design Project (RIRDP), an extension of the Rhode Island School of the Future (RISF), is to provide opportunities for students to act like real writers, real scientists, real mathematicians, real designers and to develop technological fluency through involvement in robotic design activities.
Since 1989, this project has helped RI teachers integrate robotic design activities into their classrooms and has adapted concepts from MIT's graduate course in total quality design. Each year a variety of teacher workshops and student challenges are offered statewide.
