The STEM Solution for Your Classroom
Robotics is not only the future, it is also the present. By familiarizing students with programming, sensors, and automation, they hone critical computational thinking skills needed to succeed in both the 21st century's workforce and in everyday life.
Beyond science and engineering principles, VEX Robotics solutions encourage creativity, teamwork, leadership, passion, and problem-solving among groups. That’s why VEX is committed to advancing robotics education as leaders in STEM, making it easy to implement and being your partner along the way!
Educational Robotics Opens Minds.
At VEX Robotics Singapore, we envision a world where every student has the opportunity to be inspired by the excitement of hands-on, minds-on STEM learning and the feeling of creating something with technology. Here are some other amazing effects of learning with educational robotics:
world more fully
Integrating STEM education in
Developing computational thinking
Becoming comfortable with iteration
Valuing the importance of learning from failure
The VEX Continuum
The VEX V5 Workcell, designed for Career and Technical Education, is a construction system for a 5-axis robotic arm, conveyors and sensors, combined with our proved VEXcode software.
Workcell acts as a primer, introducing students to manufacturing concepts like construction, palletizing, and coordinate planes to empower the manufacturing workforce of the future with a foundation of understanding
VEXcode allows students to get started coding quickly and easily. VEXcode is consistent across Blocks, Python, C++ and all VEX Brands. As students progress through the various levels of education, they never have to re-learn a new coding environment.
Educational Robotics Gives Students Ownership Over Their Learning
Giving students real choices in the classroom through educational robotics can boost their engagement and motivation, allow them to capitalize on their strengths, and enable them to meet their learning needs. Educational robotics helps students feel a sense of autonomy, capability and relatedness.
How Educational Robotics Connects STEM Disciplines
The study of educational robotics affords a wide variety of learning opportunities because it has STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) as its prerequisites. Robotics is always interdisciplinary in ways that are tangible and applicable to students.
Students gain an understanding and knowledge through the connecting of concepts from each of the STEM domains. Activities involving robotics necessitate that students collaborate, think computationally, troubleshoot, and innovate - all fundamental skills for 21st-century learners and, eventually, 21st-century professionals.
Educational robotics has the potential to be used as the context for teaching fundamental scientific methods and practices, such as the scientific method, observation, experimentation, data collection and analysis. It also allows for investigations of applied physics and mechanical concepts, systems thinking, and of course artificial intelligence.
Educational robotics highlights the many ways in which technology impacts daily life in the 21st century. Students build, code, and manipulate their own technological designs to apply innovative ideas that improve existing processes. Robots are tangible examples of how technology is used to meet the needs of its users and the needs of society.
Educational robotics allows students to practice the engineering design process. They learn to work within constraints, identify multiple solutions to problems, and find the best possible solution through iteration. Students hone valuable skills with problem-solving, troubleshooting, research and development, invention and innovation.
Educational robotics is an excellent way to make math more meaningful for students. Robots provide the "hook" that enables students to connect with, and immerse themselves in, the world of mathematics by applying their skills to a real-world setting. Students are then able to learn to appreciate the value of mathematics in their daily lives.
