WEBINAR SERIES: TEACHING ROBOTICS IN SECONDARY SCHOOL
Robotics and AI will play a massive role in the workforce over the coming years and secondary school graduates with high-tech literacies will have a significant advantage across all industries.
This presents a unique challenge when building a robotics program at the secondary school level - how do you provide a meaningful technical education while ensuring that you're engaging a large percentage of students?
At the middle school level (grades 6 - 8) the average level of enrollment is 5% to 15% of students, depending on the robotics product being used.
At the high school level (grades 9 - 12), average enrollment is about 3% of boys and just 0.3% of girls. Imagine, we're in the midst of the largest workforce transition in the history of man, and only 3 girls per 1,000 are interested in learning robotics. For boys, 30 out of 1,000 also represents far too low a level.
Robot's.Education has demonstrated robotics to tens of thousands of students, resulting in a dramatic increase in enrollment. Following the presentations, 25% to 45% of high school students indicate they would like to learn robotics. At the middle school level, the results are even more impressive with an average of 90% of students indicating that they would like to learn robotics.
In this webinar, Robots.Education will share their strategies for boosting student engagement to unprecedented levels, while simultaneously providing a high level of education that builds a foundation for future success.
In this session, we will:
Discuss why it's important to engage as many students as possible in robotics and coding education.
Provide insight into a few common misconceptions that exist about robotics education, and how you can address them within your school.
Share strategies for dramatically increasing enrollment within your robotics and coding programs, while simultaneously providing a high level of robotics and coding education.
