Children make Robots and Program them.
Children use computers in science and technology education to gather information, learn new material, and solve problems in ways that were previously unimaginable. Emphasis is often placed on using computer technology as a tool for productivity and problem solving, generally in the context of clearly defined standards . However, one area that has received little attention is the integration of robotics in the classroom to enhance critical thinking and promote higher-order learning.
Robotics allow students to creatively explore computer programming, mechanical design, physics, mathematics, motion, environmental factors, problem solving, and group collaboration.Working with robotics also provides students with an opportunity to construct knowledge through activity and further develop numerous mathematical and scientific concepts.
