When you enter into any new area of science, you almost always find yourself with a
baffling new language of
technical terms to learn before you can converse with the experts. Robots all have some kind of mechanical construction, a
frame, form or shape designed to achieve a particular task. Robot that needs to move across a muddy road may have the correct mechanical construction and receive the correct amount of power from its battery,
but would not go anywhere without a program telling it to move. Robots are designed for specific tasks this method of classification becomes more relevant.
Robotics courses cover multiple science, linear math and technology disciplines including machine learning, artificial intelligence,
data science, design and engineering commonly known as "STEAM" . These programs are designed
to introduce you to each of these areas and jump start your career in this exciting and rapidly expanding field. Robotics is growing rapidly with
the advent of big data and the IoT and machines are now capable of processing large quantities of data and learning with minimal human interaction.
Using autonomous vehicles as an example, the sensors on the vehicle process thousands of data points each second along with location data from the web
to move the vehicle safely along its route. Robotics projects and applications
can be found across a large number of industries from automotive production to military drone operations to landing on and exploring Mars.
WHAT WILL GIVE YOUR CHILD A HEAD START?
Engineers, computer scientists and mathematicians create robots. Some may have a robotics invention that they create on their own. However,
these experts often work together to design, build, program and create robots as well as the electrical or solar power sources that allow
robots to move and function
Kids will spend a few hours learning basic concepts of science and technology every day. Robotics is a rich background for
learning technology. Thus the future scope of Robotics is tremendous. So, we can start as soon as a kid is smart enough to
operate in the most generic computer environment. Kids can be taught the basic application of robotics to solve real problems.
A robotics workshop for kids generally includes:
- Telling them about the generic construction of a robot prototype.
- Developing problem solving and logical skills in them.
- Developing multitasking skills in them.
- Expand 21st century skills (creative thinking, problem solving and computational thinking)
