RobotEvents.com and Education
Teachers and leaders of industry have been encouraging students to pursue greater interests in science, technology, engineering, and math, or STEM. One tool they now have at their disposal is the website Robotevents.com. This website compiles news, information about robotics competitions and conferences, and information about workshops and camps.
Robotics and Education
The study of robotics and how robotic systems can be integrated into industry provides an excellent illustration of how science, technology, engineering, and math can be applied after formal schooling is complete. Integrating robots and robotic technology into curriculums or extracurricular activities in K-12 school systems gives students a chance to apply what they have been learning in their classes to actual, tangible objects.
A solid understanding of robotics will be helpful to many students once they have completed school and are looking for a job. With many industries using more industrial robots and moving towards industrial automation, students with a robotics background who are entering the workforce have a leg up on other job-seekers.
RobotEvents.com provides news and information about robot competitions, information about fundraising, and forums where students can post questions and receive feedback from others in the robotics field. This website combines many educational tools that students who are new to robots can use to further their understanding and further their robotics education.
The information about robot competitions is especially useful to students looking to take their robotic interests to the next level. Students can join forces in teams and build and program their robots to compete with other teams. Experience gained at these competitions can be added to resumes, college applications, and job applications. Students can network with each other and also with professionals in the field.
