Presentation Description: Thinking about using robots in your classroom?
Robots can be a very powerful tool to interest and engage students in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (aka STEM). Unfortunately, they’ve often only being used with a small number of enriched students who are already interested in STEM and will not get the full benefit that other students will get from a fun, interactive program that brings the practical side of STEM to students.
Girls, who are normally much less interested in STEM than boys, benefit from robotics programs, gaining experience, knowledge and confidence that will help them consider a STEM career in their future.
Mimetics cofounder and Chief Designer, Myke Predko discusses what they’ve learned after almost 15 years bringing robots and STEM education to 15,000 students.
