Educational Robotics For Kids

Summary –

Robotics is a whole new world full of excitement and fun. It basically deals with understanding how robots are made, how they work, function and what goes into controlling them.Robotics as a field has been challenging as more is always less here. As exciting as it is for scientists and IT engineers, it is for kids too. It is an extremely fascinating concept that has till date maintained kids’ interest throughout. Robotics is a world beyond robots. It involves artificial intelligence, machine learning and understanding how to make robots react to a situation in a similar way as a human would. This article mainly draws the reader's attention to this amazing topic, “Educational Robotics''. Apart from understanding what the term means, other questions like “Why learning about Robotics is important at an early age” and “What SkyFi Labs provides for your kids” will also be touched upon. Let’s get started!

What is Educational Robotics and why do we need them?

This term essentially comprises two very important terms. “Education” and “Robotics”. In simple words, it means using education the right way to understand the functioning of robots and at the same time to build them so that they are of great use to the society around. As fun as it may sound to see robots work, it is also important to learn about their working properly which we will learn about in the later section. Now talking about their needs, in simple words, to replicate the functioning of a human being and to essentially ease out people’s work life is why we need robots. Making decisions at par with human intelligence in areas like medical sciences, healthcare, money related frauds and so many to count is what the primary expectation from robots is. Understanding how a human would react to a situation or how/she would make the right decision to deliver the best results are some of the questions we should think about before we build a robot.

How do Robots work?

To those wondering about how they actually work, here’s a bit of an explanation. Consider the following piece of information to understand. Everything around us requires a set of procedures and rules that are to be followed in order to make it work properly. Same is the case with robots. To make them do even the smallest of work, an algorithm is required. This algorithm basically means a piece of code written in any programming language such as Python, Java, C/C++ etc. These algorithms are then fed into machines to make them perform a set of actions. This is pretty much similar to how fields like “Artificial Intelligence” and “Machine Learning” also work. The more efficient the code is, the more efficient the working of the robot becomes. As described previously, Coding is an integral part of robotics. It is appreciated if there is some experience of knowing any language from before because it then becomes a little easier to relate things but even that is not compulsory. But if you are a stranger to this, you need not worry at all as you are going to learn from the very basics here. All you need to have is persistence and dedication in your learning. Now having known about what educational robotics is, it is now time to learn why it is important to study about robotics from an early age.

Why is it important to get started with it at an early age?

This is one crucial question that parents today need to understand. With technology growing at an exponential rate and with almost everything becoming digital, it is of extreme importance that we also move along with time. Right from a kid’s initial growing years, he/she must be taught concepts like robotics, Artificial Intelligence while slightly touching upon coding to build a strong foundation of the real world for them. To keep your child at pace with the latest technology, it is nearly impossible to keep them away from its functioning. Children if made aware of these basic concepts right from their initial years undoubtedly gather more benefits in their lives later over others. You must be worrying and wondering that if this is so important, then what is the right approach to make your child enter into the world of technology? You must fret not as the team here at SkyFi Labs has carefully designed the projects for your child, fulfilling all the requirements yet making them an extremely fun journey. Head on to the next section to learn about the courses that you can choose for your kid now!
