" I am was happy to sponsor the Robotic Idol Program. It is the perfect way to get my students involved in our STEAM Plus Program. With the robots as our science lab we can now study and integrate science, technology, engineering, visual and performing arts, mathematics, computer languages, and foreign languages all by using the "NAO" humanoid robot." said Bob Barboza, Director of Super School University Teacher Researchers Projects.
Kids Talk Radio Backpack Robotics Programs for 2013-2014
Welcome to our new Kids Talk Radio Backpack Robotic's Program. We have just started to offer free workshops through the main branch of the down Long Beach Public Library. We are starting out by bringing teachers and school support staff to an awareness level of the potential of humanoid robots in education. We are planning a robot competition called "Robotic Idol." In this competition students will learn how to program a robot to dance. We are going to provide two weeks of training to help teachers and students to learn how to program the "NAO" robot to dance. The final competition is scheduled for October 26, 2013. Teachers can apply by sending an e-mail to Suprschool@aol.com.
Robots and Students with Special Needs
In November, 2013 Bob Barboza and some of his teacher researchers from Super School University will begin working with special needs students with learning disabilities, autism and gifted and talented students. They are going to collaborate with other university and parents to explore how the "NAO" robots can help students with autism spectrum challenges. Kids Talk Radio Science will continue to report the news about this new and exciting area of action research.
Backpack Robotics Lab Software
Super School Software has just completed new software programs to help students that are studying Java, Python and C++. We created this software to support our robotic workshops and to provide students an opportunity to get hands on experience with the "NAO" robot and intermediate and advanced skill development. Backpack Robotic's software is designed for student and teachers that take our Backpack Robotic's distance learning and in class robotic's workshops.

Antarctica STEM Portfolio
STEM Portfolios (Super School Software)
Antartica STEM Project ePortfolios (Super School Software)
The student backpack journalists at Kids Talk Radio Science use STEM e-Portfolios to help with their studies about Antarctica. For the past seven years Doug Stoup and Bob Barboza have been creating audio and video podcasts of their adventures in Antarctica, the North Polar Region and the Amazon Jungle. In 2011, Barboza visited the Cabo Verde Island to establish relationships with the Cabo Verde Government and the University of Cape Verde. We created custom software for all of our teachers and students. We call our new project the Cabo Verde Tenth Island Project. We are working with 34 countries as we study the uninhabited island of Santa Luzia, Cape Verde. You can find out more information by visiting some of educational technology websites:
