RobotsLAB BOX recognized for the innovation, creativity and delivery of a “Game Changer product” in the education market.
Santa Clara, CA, Wednesday, October 23rd 2013 - A panel of distinguished experts from NASA’s JPL, universities around the world, the investment community and Robotics Business Review, chose RobotsLAB BOX to join an exclusive group of products recognized for outstanding achievements.
The awarded product – RobotsLAB BOX, is a teaching-aid, designed to help educators demonstrate abstract concepts in math and science using robots.
RobotsLAB BOX won the Game Changer Award in the Education category, one of twelve categories honored by the Game Changers Awards. The distinguished awards are celebrating exceptional developments in technology, innovation, accessibility and delivery.
“Our passion is in education and robotics, our mission is to engage students in STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) improve the level of education and create smarter, user-friendly and low-cost robotic solutions for educators. We are delighted to be recognized for the innovation by the notable panel of judges and the Robotics Business Review,” said RobotsLAB CEO, Elad Inbar.
The teaching-aid is synergistic with President Obama’s “Educate to Innovate” campaign; aiding in the race to return the US to the front of the global Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) industry by inspiring students to be the next generation of makers, discoverers, and innovators and helping teachers to easily demonstrate abstract concepts such as quadratic equations in real life.
“Robots are a great visual-learning tool,” added Inbar, “they move in our physical space, they are the perfect tool to visualize concepts that otherwise are just too abstract; ideas like quadratic equations, sine, cosine, vectors, arc length and more are coming to life using the robots included in the RobotsLAB BOX. We’ve created the easy-to-use lesson plans together with 14 teachers and Prof. Peter Stone from UT Austin, and all of them are aligned with mandated Common Core, STAAR and TEKS standards.”
At the event, the company also revealed that hundreds of educators and schools enthusiastically embrace the product across the country, and that it is rapidly expanding the distribution of the RobotsLAB BOX across the US using its network of 11 distributors.
