Robotics provides opportunities for authentic problem solving in a fun and engaging environment. When students design and build robots they study math, science, engineering and physics. Students are immersed in geometry, trigonometry, electronics, programming, logic, computer control and mechanics while using industry standard hardware and software. They learn to compromise when working in teams, and they begin to understand the importance of time management and resource allocation. Robotics is an excellent tool to teach systematic problem solving, which all of the PHS math, science, and technology teachers see as a major concern for the STAAR assessments. In addition, it gives students opportunities to develop work related competencies in today’s technologies.
