Key Concepts Taught in STEM Class (6-8th Grade)

Students go through the design and build a robot. During this process they will learn key STEM principles, and robotics concepts.

This project-based curriculum teaches the design process in an engaging, hands-on manner to inspire, motivate, and engage students.

  • Using the engaging nature of Robotics Exploration to teach students skills in proportional reasoning.
  • Robot Virtual Worlds are simulation environments designed to help students learn how to program.
