Participants will learn how Snap! code can be used to program robots to emote and act out scenes of Shakespeare's Macbeth. The session facilitator will show participants how Snap! code was used in her ELA classroom as part of a language arts unit.

Pam Amendola is a British and American Literature teacher in Dawsonville, GA at Dawson County High School. She had her students learn the play Macbeth and as part of her instructional strategy use robots to act out scenes in Act V of the play. Students needed to write Snap! code to get Hummingbird/Finch robots to act out assigned scenes in the play. Her "Macbot" project was modified from a similar project produced at Pace University's "Babblelab". Together with Tom Liam Lynch and Gerald Ardito, Pam was able to bring the Babblelab Bardbot lessons into her classroom.

Tom, Gerald, and Pam are passionate about integrating computer science and computational thinking into core subjects.
