Robotics is a multi-disciplinary tool that is being increasingly used by many schools worldwide to motivate, excite and inspire children about math and science.
Robotics inspires students to make connections across several disciplines rather than learning topics in isolation as it combines mechanical, electronic, electrical and programming skills. Students are motivated to learn by creating their own robotic devices, while at the same time gain a deeper understanding of interdisciplinary fields of study. In addition, robotics appeals to a broad range of students and allows multiple points of access to science and technology for a variety of learners.
Robotics is already playing a very pivotal and cutting edge role in diverse sectors such as manufacturing, avionics, medicine, defense, automobile, and entertainment to name a few.
As technology becomes increasingly important in today's world, it is invaluable to not only learn how to use technology, but also to understand how to create it. Technology is the future and today's kids are tomorrow's technologists.
