robots4STEM, a division of RoboKind, is committed to creating unlimited access
and opportunity for all students to learn and experience visual coding and programming.
robots4STEM has developed a next generation curriculum to teach elementary-level
students meaningful, relevant coding skills that:
- Are competency-based
- Are informed by educational standards
- Allow students to progress through the program at their own pace
- Include embedded assessing, which allows
- students to check their understanding in real time
Active Learning Through Co-Creation
robots4STEM’s standards informed, competency-based and self-paced curriculum pairs a virtual, customizable avatar with a facially expressive, social, humanoid robot.
Students develop the capacity, competence and confidence to create, innovate and problem-solve in areas that matter most to them. Learner agency increases students from consumers to co-authors of technology.
Meanwhile, teachers function as activators, providing consistent, real-time, personalized feedback to students.
Beyond programming and coding, students learn valuable life skills applicable to any discipline. These include:
- Critical thinking
- Computational thinking
With robots4STEM, students can learn to code anywhere, anytime; in the classroom, at home, after school, in extracurricular organizations, in a lab and more. Most importantly, the robots4STEM program does not require the teacher to have any experience with coding, programming or robotics.
Enables schools to have a comprehensive STEM course for grades 3 - 5 without a STEM-trained teacher.
Drag-and-drop visual coding language that helps students learn the logic of scripting.
Students progress through narratively-linked lessons in the Scratch™ Workspace with an avatar.
Once students have debugged their code, they can run their program on a real robot.
Teachers do not need to know how to code to teach coding with robots4STEM®.
Teachers are provided a full curriculum including pre-made lessons, grading rubrics, and optional activity building resources.
