Engaging Students with Robots
Our students’ futures are going to be rich in technology, and engineering, programming, and coding education and jobs are going to be in high demand.
Studies have shown that nearly 80% of future careers will require some STEAM skills. By learning robotics, students will develop the basic analytical, problem-solving and critical thinking skills central to academic achievement and workforce readiness in the 21st Century.
Students will also be able to gain valuable, entrance level experience in engineering, programming, and coding, and will benefit from having improved attitudes towards STEAM fields and careers, because high-quality STEAM programs show an increased likelihood of graduation and pursuit of a STEAM career.
