The RobotLAB BOX is a revolutionary teaching-aid demonstrating math and science's core concepts, using robots.
The easy-to-use tablet includes interactive lessons, in-class quizzes, and instructional videos, which help students understand why math is relevant to their world.
Without any prior experience in robotics or computer science, teachers can demonstrate abstract concepts like slope, sine, cosine, and vectors right out of the BOX. The lesson plans are strictly aligned with mandated Common Core, TEKS, and STAAR standards for middle and high school.
Designed by teachers for teachers this affordable solution improves student’s understanding and information retention; robots are the best engagement tool math and science classes have ever seen!
Many STEM projects focus mainly on the STE-, neglecting the M(ath) component. Meanwhile mathematics proficiency in high school students has fallen to 32% -- disqualifying many graduates from entry-level jobs. Our team of roboticists, engineers, teachers and professors are dedicated to fixing the education system using 21st century technology, bringing math to life and preparing students for their future, ensuring their career and college readiness.
RobotsLAB BOX moves abstract mathematical concepts away from the white board and transforms them into real life demonstrations. Students can see a quadcopter teach quadratic equations, a rover demonstrate angular and linear concepts conversions, and a robotic arm will show you what the word cosine really means.
Just swipe your fingers on the yellow slider on the left side of the screen, and the robots will come to life. No prior experience in computer science, robotics or programming is needed.
Every lesson was designed to bring abstract concepts to life by providing concrete demonstrations (when the robots are moving around) to the abstract concepts (equations, graphs). Explaining abstract relationships and equations such as quadratic equations, slope, unit circle and even piece wise functions, was never that easy and engaging!
The lessons are divided to three sections:
RobotLAB BOX's lessons plans are aligned with mandated standards such as Common Core and TEKS (for TX). The standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what the students are expected to learn. The pathway to college and career is paved; RobotLAB BOX's lesson plans, quizzes and other instructional materials are a great way to make sure students will succeed in their future.
