CEEO programs are designed to give students the chance to participate in individual and small-team design projects while fostering an understanding of the design process and related principles. Students  use LEGO bricks and accompanying icon-based software as they design, build, and program their robotic creations. Although the program is educational, we want the children to enjoy themselves and have fun. Instructors are a collection of CEEO staff with engineering, education, and child development backgrounds, and Tufts engineering students.
