Robotics education is increasingly getting integrated into schools. It's mainly because K12 school students will graduate when the workforce is thriving on the technological front – an era when robots will be used widely for different purposes.
It doesn't matter if these children choose a career in robotics and coding or not. Learning about robots can teach them vital skills like teamwork, programming, analytical thinking, innovation, and collaborative thinking. It can also be incorporated into STEAM classes for kids, getting a lot of traction across the world.
Educational robotics can support and strengthen students' skills by developing the knowledge base via the design, creation, operation, and assembly of robots. Children find robotics engaging and funny because they get to interact with the mechanical and electrical processes directly.
The programming side of robotics can become very insipid when learned traditionally. Therefore, physically experiencing a robot can help children understand the functions well.
Here are some trends in educational robotics that EdTech experts believe will form the future of robotics.
