The Importance of Robotics in Education
Updated: May 29, 2020
Educators on all levels — teachers, principals, and superintendents — know the value of learning science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and focusing on technology in education.
Robotics takes education technology to a new level, creating the next evolution in teaching. That’s because introducing robotics to schools means making STEM skills and knowledge hands-on and fun, to prepare students for the future in a way that feels more like creativity and less like homework.
Robotics requires all of the subjects of STEM, so it’s a well-rounded approach to educational technology and learning.
What do members do at Roboz Lab?
Having a Membership at Roboz is one of the greatest gifts you can ever gift to your child. All Members get access to the special Tech Lab of Roboz. They make real-life robots, individually. Each Member gets special attention and we do not crowd our Tech Lab for best quality learning. Members get free kits, a specially designed robotics notebook, goodies, and all essential research kits including dedicated Lab access Radio Cards with password technology. If you step in once, you will find a different world of science in here.
Encouraging Students with STEM
Robotics is a fun way to bring STEM to life, and that’s important because STEM is the key to a successful future for students with the interest and motivation to pursue careers in this field.
Why encourage students to pursue STEM? For many, the potential money talks. Out of 100 STEM occupations, 93 percent of them had wages above the national average according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
At the same time, according to the US Department of Labor’s projections, US universities are expected to produce only 29 percent of the required number of graduates to fill 1.4 million computer specialist job openings. And before they can get to that point, the prospects are grim: just 36 percent of all high school graduates are prepared to take a college-level science course (National Math & Science Initiative).
