What is Robotics?
Robotics is a production-based learning module. Students get an opportunity to create something tangible and make it perform the actions that they program it to do. Not a lot of fields combine creativity with engineering and technology—robotics does.
How is it beneficial?
When students are given the opportunity to create something interactive that they think is cool, their engagement levels increase, and they retain more information. In today’s’ technology-driven world, it’s important now more than ever to prepare students for the future.
1. It helps the students to develop teamwork and co-operative skills – When kids work on a robotic project, they need to work in a group or a team as one can be good in programming skill but other parameters such as engineering, technology, and sensors are also important for building a robot. Hence, they need to collaborate with their team members in an open environment. They not only need to express themselves but also need to listen to others to capture their valuable inputs.
2. It helps the students to share and participate i.e. involve with community– It helps the students to create positive confidence and attitude to face the outer world. Students tend to be shy but when they learn robotics and develop robots on their own, they want to show their achievement to the world. This creates a great sense of ownership and positive outlook in them. They feel to be more connected to the community.
3. A Strong and robust curriculum will create knowledgeable leaders for tomorrow – Robotics Education is said to be difficult but it is said that difficult situations create great leaders. The ability to communicate across a platform with different groups shows the essential personal strengths of an individual and how he/she is utilizing their positive traits to get a solution of the problem.
4. It helps the students to know their strengths, weaknesses and passion- It is an amazing experience to see the student’s excitement when they start learning robotics. It helps them to know their strong and weak areas of strength. It helps the students to articulate the problem and solution in much effective and efficient way. Robotics cultivates an interest and nurtures the passion in this field.
Ramagya School teaches robotics to young students throughout their schooling so that they can increase their ability of creation and innovation and be more productive members of the society. Ramagya school has recognized the importance of robotics in the classroom and has begun to create programs to promote the same. By teaching our students the basics of robotics, we can open a whole new world to them and exciting opportunities that they wouldn’t have access to otherwise.
