Teaching STEM Using Real World Robotics New technologies are remaking the modern world and changing the way we live and interact, giving both immense new opportunities as well as new challenges. What will growing up in an internet of things, augmented reality, and in the company of robots mean for the children of tomorrow? What should we be teaching and learning to prosper in this brave new world?PiBot is an exciting robot kit for the Raspberry Pi, designed for digital makers wanting to learn and have fun with technology. Harry Gee, Director of Pibot, will present at RE.WORK The Future of Education workshop on Monday 15th June, looking at the emerging approaches for teaching STEM using cutting-edge technology - such as robotics, 3D printing, computing and a fun ‘learning by doing’ approach. We caught up with Harry ahead of the event to hear more about PiBot and how they're changing edtech.Q: What area of edtech are you currently working in?HG: I'm running workshops with young people teaching them how to make robots. Once they build the robot they have to learn how to boss them about by programming them. I'm also designing some build your own robot kits and content. Q: What problem are you trying to address?HG: Technology is advancing into society at a fantastic rate. I'm trying to help young people make the most of it and also avoid its dangers. The best way I've found to do this is through real world robotics. Continue reading here.
