Classroom Resource: Robo-Share

Printer-friendly version

Robo-Share in intended as means for students to become more aware of how their lives are permeated by STEM.  Students are encouraged to share examples of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math that they come across day-to-day.  Newspaper or Magazine articles, web sites, YouTube videos and commercials are all great sources for Robo-Shares that bring to life aspects of STEM.  Increasing explicit awareness of STEM helps to make STEM Robotics more relevant.  Not many students will end up working for" Robots-R-Us",but  many will find a future in some STEM field.  It helps to remind students that virtually every product they buy, every sports they participate in, and every hobby they enjoy involves aspects of Engineering and Technology (and their underlying Math and Science).
