Are you planning for school year 19-20? Do you teach Kansas and US History?

Check out this new way to tour the Kansas History Museum without ever leaving your classroom!

IKE is a robot that is available for guided tours of the Kansas Museum of History for grades K-12.

A museum teacher uses IKE in the museum to share the exhibits with students. The museum teacher can see and hear students in the classroom. The classroom teacher "drives" IKE through the exhibits. The classroom teacher is provided with an easy-to-use software to operate IKE from a classroom computer. It is totally interactive and a fun way to engage your students in Kansas and U.S. history.


Let me know if I can help you arrange this type of experience for your students!
