One way to think about it is to consider what a current teaching approach to robotics might entail. In our current approach, a teacher with no special knowledge about robotics teaches from a lesson plan to students at a theoretical level and then tests them on a limited range of material.
In a STEM-focused approach, a teacher would guide students with the foundation of robotics, require them to actually build and operate a robot, and then keep reinforcing the skills through practice that goes way beyond a “test it and forget it” approach.
It’s through this approach that will allow students to work side-by-side with these emerging technologies and create a better world.
