From kindergarten on, students are exposed to a rich curriculum designed to put them on track to a rewarding career in science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). When our team learned about Earhart's need for these robotics kits, we wanted to help.

Are classroom robots the NextGen of learning?

Neo LMS

I recently read a report that said schools in the UK spend £900mn per year on educational technology. Technology has the potential to further transform the way we learn, as is apparent by the advancements in robotics and its use in classrooms. Let’s take a look at how robots are currently being used in classrooms and try answering the question of the hour: Do robots have the potential to teach students in the future? Classroom robots of today.
