terk the telepresence robot kit
TeRK – the Telepresence Robot Kit
  • We strongly believe that robotics can be used as a tool to educate and motivate students across a wide variety of topics and ages.
  • Emerging technologies are enabling us to simultaneously lower costs and increase functionality.

The Turk

A “TeRK”

terk capabilities
TeRK - Capabilities

With a TeRK, you can connect:

One webcam One wireless adapter Speakers Four DC motors

Eight LEDs Eight analog sensors Sixteen servos

terk projects
TeRK Projects
  • Curricular Modules for Introduction to Computer Science
  • Robot Diary
  • Network Neighborhoods
  • Online Community Building and Recipe Creation
intro to cs curricula
Intro to CS Curricula
  • Create curricular modules for the following CS topics: Simple I/O, Flow Control, Arrays, File read/write, and Errors and exceptions
  • Modules will include robot centered assignments and activities
robot diary
Robot Diary
  • Currently engaged in participatory design sessions with middle school girls
  • Design sessions will inform a future robot design that allows girls to express emotion and communicate with their friends through the robot
network neighborhoods
Network Neighborhoods
  • Provide high school students with environmental sensors and wireless technology to deploy environmental monitoring stations
  • Students will also be tasked with creating artistic public displays to express the information that their monitoring stations collect
your turn
Your Turn!
  • Modify the sample program to cause the robot to react to certain colors
  • How the robot reacts is up to you, but we suggest something obvious.
  • Doing nothing is not an acceptable reaction. 
