95 per cent of schools re­book

The Australian Education Reporter - - STEM FOCUS -

ROBOKIDS de­liv­ers work­shops to more than 18,000 stu­dents and teach­ers in Aus­tralia for schools and chil­dren’s ser­vices.

Robokids of­fers teacher pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment, robotics in­cur­sions, and af­ter school pro­grams. We pro­vide our ser­vices in all States and Ter­ri­to­ries and have spe­cific teams in NSW, South Aus­tralia and VIC which travel.

Our pro­grams align with the Aus­tralian Dig­i­tal Tech­nolo­gies syl­labus, spe­cific State cur­ricu­lums and sup­port teach­ers on their STEAM jour­ney in robotics.

The STEAM ro­botic work­shops will pre­pare stu­dents for the fu­ture workspace by de­vel­op­ing crit­i­cal think­ing and anal­y­sis, as well as en­cour­ag­ing stu­dents to be cu­ri­ous, and prob­lem solve both in­de­pen­dently and in col­lab­o­ra­tion with oth­ers.

Robokids aims to cap­ture girls as young as preschool and hold their STEAM cu­rios­ity through their for­ma­tive years, so, to­gether with your school we can ad­dress the gen­der im­bal­ance in STEAM ca­reers.

Robokids is proud of a re­cent sur­vey of cur­rent k-6 stu­dents, where 85 per cent stated they would se­lect robotics as an elec­tive if of­fered in their school cur­ricu­lum.

“In Aus­tralia, when our stu­dents shift from be­ing users of tech­nol­ogy to de­sign­ers of tech­nol­ogy they will have the ca­pac­ity to cre­ate a bet­ter world,” Teacher and founder of Robokids Michele Miller said.
