With the improvement in technology, many areas of our lives have changed. Robotics is essential in education as it comes with many advantages.
Students learn new skills and develop their knowledge. It helps students improve their attention, design, and teamwork skills. It brings students together to do something fun and worthwhile. Here are the main benefits of robotics in education.

Coding is enormous in education right now.
No wonder. Coding offers so many academic benefits that schools cannot ignore its significance. Sequential processes, computational thinking, and creative problem-solving all make upcoding. It’s the new literacy in schools. There’s so much to like about coding that coding academies and boot camps are springing up everywhere.
Bootcamps can be expensive, but they are intensive. Participants learn as much as possible in three to six months, securing employment as a coder soon after that. Academies, on the other hand, tend to be more flexible. They offer coding training at all levels, and students create code in maker spaces.
Coding appeals to children of all ages. Not only are there plenty of outstanding apps with which to teach coding, but there are also schools focused intensely on learning how to code.

As a society, we learn about the world and advance our well-being through science and engineering. The United States may be known around the world for its higher education, but compared to many other leading and steadily emerging countries, we lack a strong focus on educating scientists and engineers. One significant reason that we have fallen behind is that we do not encourage our female students to pursue career paths in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
This needs to change, as the lack of women in STEM will continue to plague our country until all students, regardless of sex, have adequate opportunities to explore math and science throughout elementary, middle, and high school. If we want to attract the best and brightest minds into the fields that will move us forward, we must look to all of the population. More women can contribute to our field, and we can help make that happen. Below are a few strategies for how we can help.
Critical thinking and problem-solving skills are essential to success at university and in later life. However, the traditional classroom model has done a poor job of imparting these skills to students. The way children have learned in the classroom for generations has focused on lectures and worksheets. Past generations would depend on group sports, clubs, and teenage jobs to impart these vital skills to students.
However, new ideas suggest that robotics may hold the key to teaching problem-solving skills to students. Using robots to teach real-world skills may be a strange concept, but is it worth exploring? We think so and here’s why.

Comparing the efficacy and value of HVAC, HEPA, and UVC systems is a good place to start when analyzing classroom air safety as in-person learning resumes.
Today, I want to share with you one of the best robots on the market, the UVD robot that is using UVC light in order to disinfect the spaces. Check the video below!
Japanese tech company SoftBank has created a version of its Pepper robot that can detect whether office workers are wearing a mask.
The 47-inch-high robot with human-like features is already in operation in some countries welcoming visitors to shops, exhibitions and other public spaces.
But the upgraded version is designed to stand at the entrance to offices, conferences, airports and other public spaces, to provide a gentle reminder to people to wear masks.
The Milan Malpensa International Airport in Italy is a major airport that welcomes over 20 million passengers each year. Their customers' safety is crucial, especially in these unprecedented times. To help protect travelers from contaminants such as COVID-19, they've decided to implement Connor UVC robot to systematically disinfect the Airport to help prevent the virus from spreading.
The Milan Malpensa Airport is the first Airport in Italy to deploy robots to clean and disinfect airport terminals. The Connor UVC Robots have already been tested and are actively at work targeting bacteria that are both in the air and on surfaces.
