STEMbotics combines STEM enriched coding with state of the art software and equipment to build and program robotic models and video games. STEMbotics is focused on promoting the advancement of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. By exposing students to STEM and giving them opportunities to explore STEM-related concepts, they will develop a passion for it and use that passion to develop key life skills. Science is everywhere in the world around us. Technology is continuously expanding into every aspect of our lives. Engineering is the basic designs of roads and bridges, but also tackles the challenges of changing global weather and environmentally-friendly changes to our home. Mathematics is in every occupation, every activity we do in our lives. Our STEM based curriculum ties in real-life situations to concepts that students can relate to by using LEGO® kits and coding software from LEGO® Education and SCRATCH.
In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past (National Science Foundation)
It’s the beginning of an adventure! Every educator knows how important it is to get classes off to a great start. By introducing a unique design in each STEMbotics lesson, you’ll always have an answer for the recurring question of ‘What are we going to build today?’. Interesting and engaging lessons are guaranteed!
Step-by-step instructions for building each robot are available to students through the STEMbotics online learning platform. Teams will access the building instructions and other materials shared by the teacher.
Complete and detailed instructions for programming each robot are available on the STEMbotics online learning platform. Students will use Block Level programming to control and animate their projects.
Teams will take their completed Robots in conjunction with the corresponding program and execute their program. Teams will then analyze their findings and make appropiate modifications as needed.
