The focus of education and the role of educators are rapidly changing. Twenty first century learning is about providing children with opportunities to experiment with their surroundings as a form of problem solving. The focus now is on creativity, collaboration, motivation, self direction, improvisation, discovery, and interacting with meaningful tools that expand intellectual capacities.
The robotics curriculum helps school children to “do” Science and Math and not just study them, making robotics a powerful teaching tool. Robotics in education is quickly becoming a popular way to engage students in the STEM concepts (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
Robotics is not just about building robots but building critical life-skills teamwork, problem solving, time management and effective communication. It is about raising the bar and expectations for students through national and international competitions and providing a measurable standard. Robotics helps make abstract concepts concrete and ensures that learning is relevant and engaging.
