The occasion was a teacher luncheon, wrapping up a three-day conference at NJIT highlighting the use of robots in science, math and technology classes. The NJIT Center for Pre-College Programs hosted the event, thanks to Netflix prize money won by an AT&T research team and donated last year to NJIT by the corporation. Teachers walked away with teaching ideas, plus Lego Mind Storm sets to continue building robots back in their classrooms.
