It’s not (just) about the robots!
(There are many robots you can choose for your robotics-based Early Learning Advantage STEM Program. See “How to Choose a Robot“)
- Robots are ideal tools for introducing young children to the Game of STEM.
- But Robots alone won’t turn our kids into Math & Science Athletes (who can play one of many positions on Team USA: Programmer, Problem-Solver, Applied Mathematician, Engineer!).
- To do this you need to embed your robots into an accelerated learning environment: what we call Active Learning Zones. See “How Do We Create World Class Math & Science Athletes“
