Are we doing enough to increase participation in STEM fields?

women_in_stem_1200x627.jpg

This words are from professor Gijsbert Stoet: “If governments want to increase women’s participation in STEM, a more effectively strategy might be to target the girls who are clearly being ‘lost’ from the STEM pathway: those for whom science and math are their best subjects and who enjoy it but still don’t choose it.”  http://bit.ly/2EHezl3 

And they really got us thinking if we are doing enough for gender equality related to STEM fields and if we are responsibles for keep inspiring young people and specially women to choose this type of careers, so we want to hear your thoughts!

 A successful Case Study at Albany High School 

At RobotLAB, we are always working hard to bring unique experiences to classrooms. Developing NAO has allowed us to do this- revitalizing the way STEM is being taught all the way down to the very first educational stages. 

Recently, we carried out a Demo Lesson partnering with Albany High School. On this occasion, we used NAO robot to work with students on English subjects - an experience that gave us great insights into how robotics can influence learning in multiple ways. 

So, what kind of impression did NAO make on students? What do they think now about engineering and overall learning? Let's find out!

Bringing the MakerBot 3d Printer into the Classroom

I want you to take a minute to think about how your life might have been different if you’d grown up with a MakerBot in your high school or elementary school. How might it have changed your understanding of math, mechanics, or design? And what could it have unleashed in you if you had the ability, from an early age, to take things that you imagined and turned them into things that are tangible? These are all questions that are really exciting because the way things are headed; the next generation is going to grow up "MakerBotting". I personally can’t wait to see what kind of positive effect that’s going to have on our future.

Makerbot 3d printing in schools

Math teachers, science teachers and engineering teachers, are you looking for a way to make your beloved disciplines more relevant to your students? Maybe even inspire a few to love them the way you do?  Well, right now there is affordable new technology out there that can help you do just that! The Makerbot 3D printer and STEM BOT 3D CLASS from our own RobotsLAB.

 

 

StemBot 3D program that teaches students how to 3D print a robot, assemble it, work on the electronics, and finally program it.

Actually, 3D printers have been around since the 1980’s, but they were massive and super-expensive like the first-generation computers. Only in the last few years have they shrunk in size and dropped in price to where individual households and schools could afford them.
