Why robotics for kids?

Robotics is the best and fun way of teaching STEM concepts for kids along with hands-on practices. Usually, kids will not show much interest in learning math or science through books.

But, if you teach the same concept in a practical approach they will show more interest and learn the concepts quickly.

Following are some of the benefits of learning robotics for kids:

Learning robotics will actually improve the kid’s creativity and problem-solving skills as they try to solve problems that arise while putting robotics components together.

Programming/coding is also introduced to kids as they learn robotics. Since coding is required to make the robot function as per the requirement. This will improve the coding skills of the kids which is a major skill in this technology-driven world.

Robotics provides a chance for kids to develop something new. Kids will gain more self-confidence when they build a device from scratch and make it work. This also motivates them to do more such kind of innovations.

Nowadays schools also started teaching robotics for kids with the help of STEM robotics kits as part of their curriculum to make the learning process more efficient. This shows that robotics has become an undeniable learning tool for kids.

What is the appropriate age to start robotics for kids?

When we hear the word robotics the first thing that strikes our mind is - a machine with glowing eyes and lots of wires that works for humans (sometimes) or attacks humans with weapons (mostly).

This is because through movies we were made to believe that robots are such kind of complex machines.

But, we are engaging with robots in our daily lives, for example - smartphone, laptop, washing machine, etc. all these devices are one type of robot.

It’s hard to believe, right?

Read the below explanation to understand what is a robot.

A robot is a machine that takes input, processes it and gives the output to perform a task automatically with minimal or no human intervention.

I think, now the above-mentioned examples make sense for you.

To prevent kids from falling into the same trap it is better to start teaching robotics for kids in young age.

Also, young kids have fresh minds which helps them to understand well and learn complex topics more quickly.

Gone are the days when kids used to cry for toys because the time has come where kids can build their own robotic toys to play with.

Some parents also have questions like, "Should we go with online robotics classes or offline robotics classes?" If you have such questions, you can read this blog post about Online vs Offline Robotics Classes for Kids - Which Are Better?
