The Future of Robotics in STEM Education

The Future of Robotics in STEM Education

The robotics field is growing at an incredible rate, and students are benefitting from the inclusion of robotics in STEM education. Robotics in the classroom has positive results on students such as encouraging students to pursue more STEM career paths and develop the necessary 21st century skills that will enable them for success in the future. Caitlin Howe, author of Innovative Teaching Blog, asks teachers to ponder the following question, “not only should we look at how robotics can improve what we are currently doing, we also should ask ourselves the question, what the integration of robotics, together with other new technologies, makes possible that was previously impossible?” By internalizing this idea, robotics can make waves in any classroom.
