What is STEM ?

STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. We focus on these areas together not only because the skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential for student success, but also because these fields are deeply intertwined in the real world and in how students learn most effectively. STEM is an interdisciplinary and applied approach that is coupled with hands-on, problem-based learning.

Why robotics in STEM Education ?

1. Robots have an intellectual and emotional appeal that transcends any other type of engineered product.

2. Robots inculcate an interest in science and increase self-esteem, as well as teach basic life skills such as problem solving, decision making, goal setting and logical thinking.

3. Robots represent a practical application of physics, computer science, engineering, and mathematics, and may be used to speculate about concepts of humanities.

4. Robotics in the classroom offers teachers the opportunity to bring together many different areas of study.

5. It also allows students the chance to realize their full potential, moving from possibility to reality through a hands-on process that uses their many skills as a human being including cooperative problem solving and critical thinking.

6. Robot can also used to teach humanities ( like ethics, philosophy, etc. ).

7. Robotics its-self is a discipline worth to study because the robots are no longer restricted to the factory floor or hazardous environments, robots are making their way into human environments.
