Life Skills You'll Gain
Ready to level up your life skills? Learning about Robotics is a great way to do it! Check out some of the abilities you'll develop as you become a pro.
Requires breaking down complex problems into smaller, manageable tasks, and then finding solutions to those tasks.
Requires understanding the logic and structure of a program or robot, and being able to think critically about how to improve it.
Allows students to express their creativity by building their own programs, games, art and other digital projects.
Persistence and grit
Can be challenging, and learning it often requires a lot of trial and error which develops persistence and grit as they work through difficult problems.
Often done in teams, and students learn how to work effectively with others and communicate their ideas effectively.
Can be used to develop and design websites, mobile applications, software and robots. This can be used to start a business venture or to create a startup.
Can help students develop their understanding of technology and how it works, which can be useful in many areas of life.
Often requires a combination of science, technology, engineering and math, and students who take robotics courses may develop their STEM skills and knowledge.
Spatial awareness and dexterity
Helps students develop their spatial awareness and dexterity, as they work with small parts and machines.
Students learn to express ideas effectively, collaborate, and provide feedback to achieve successful outcomes.
