Making STEM education fun for school kids by teaching through robotics
“Robotics is all about the future. We live in a complex fast changing world with multiple issues confronting us. It is imperative that we give our future generation the knowledge and power to build a better world. Introducing little children to interesting learning methodologies at an early stage will help trigger their imagination and interest,” said A. S. Ramana Prasad, Chairman & Governing Council Member, Robotix Learning Solutions Pvt. Ltd and Meritus Smart Learning Solutions Pvt Ltd., when they announced the plans to extend its offerings for school students in the state of Tamil Nadu. With an initiative called the Mynd Works, they aim at introducing students to the world of Robotix and Brain Gym Kinesthetics. This offering from the house of Robotix & Meritus will be hosted at 30 partner play schools across the state covering 7200 students by 2015.
Robotix Learning Solutions has taken up robotics with a new approach involving educating the young minds by exposing them to knowledge through learning and fun. Robotix offers robotics education for kids, through an interdisciplinary approach, where STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) teaching happens in a more interesting and innovative manner. The Brain Gym Kinesthetic classes aim to enable students from grade 4 to 7 to activate their left and right brain knowledge in a fun, interactive and engaging manner, a first of its kind in India. “We are happy to expand our offerings and partnerships with playschools. We always strive to offer the best way to educate students at various stages and are all set to take this innovative, meticulously designed program to benefit kids from their early age,” added A. S.
