There’s little doubt that science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) will continue to be a vital aspect of our society for the foreseeable future. Even many industries that aren’t obviously STEM-based are still driven by a range of tech tools. Our everyday lives are populated by ever more advanced hardware and software. It’s no wonder, then, that a solid STEM education is considered essential for today’s students.
Yet, one of the prevalent challenges of STEM education is boosting engagement among a more diverse student base. This vital collection of subjects is still not always inclusive to learners from different backgrounds. Fortunately, robotics can be a powerful tool here. It’s a fascinating and engaging subject while also holding enormous potential for driving, supporting, and encouraging diverse STEM learning practices.

The recent PISA test scores for OECD countries reveal a concerning trend: a noticeable decline in mathematics and science performance among students. These subjects are pillars of modern education, underpinning critical thinking and problem-solving skills necessary for the workforce of tomorrow. Reading, while seemingly stable, also requires renewed focus to ensure comprehensive literacy. In the wake of these findings, it's imperative to find innovative approaches to re-engage students. Robotics education offers a multifaceted solution to this challenge, providing a dynamic learning experience that can reignite students' passion and proficiency in these key areas.
