• "Activities that encourage students to take objects apart, put them back together and solve problems through invention are the kind of hands-on learning that sticks. Students of all ages need time to tinker.”

Activities in Robotics
  • Automation, through robotics and Artificial Intelligence, is now being referred to as the next industrial revolution. Technology allows us to become productive and increases our efficiency. Technology does not replace creative thinking, problem-solving, teamwork and initiative. Rather, we use intelligent technologies to create a better world for us to live in.

    Robotics engineers are required to have at least bachelor's degrees for entry-level jobs in the field, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. They typically hold degrees in mechanical engineering or related engineering specialties, though degrees in physical science and mathematics may also qualify robotics engineers for employment.

    Examples of intelligent technologies:

    • Google’s investment in driverless cars
    • IBM’s Watson partnership with Memorial Sloan Kettering and MD Anderson Cancer Center to personalize cancer treatment
    • Skype’s launch of real time voice translation
    • The use of drones in aerial photography, mapping of inaccessible terrain, crop monitoring, express deliveries, etc
