How robotics makes a positive impact on students

Robots can develop and nurture curiosity in students and help bring them closer to hands-on learning experiences. Robotics has the power to make learning more meaningful for students, teachers and parents, and also for the future needs of society. It helps bring high-quality and interactive learning tools to schools, boosting students’ skills for their professional and personal future.


Including robotics in the classroom can bring a full range of benefits for students and teachers, and we wanted to start the year by sharing some of the ways in which robotics can positively impact our student’s life and learning experiences. From identifying their areas of interest, choosing career paths, and reaching their full potential, robotics for students can help shape technology leaders for tomorrow.


  • Robotics Helps Develop Critical-Thinking and Problem-Solving Skills

  • Robotics Helps Students Discover New Passions and Career Paths

  • Robotics Makes Learning Code, Engineering and Math Fun

  • Robotics Promotes Teamwork




Robotics Helps Develop Critical-Thinking and Problem-Solving Skills


Robotics can boost critical-thinking and problem-solving, skills that are the foundation for success in any life area. Developing these skills will prepare students for the educational and professional fields. But how can robotics help develop these skills?


When working on a robot, students face situations where they need to use logic and critical thinking in order to effectively find a solution. Robotics allows students to make mistakes, leading them to explore different possibilities until they find a solution. The process of facing a problem and actively finding a solution creates the perfect environment to stimulate their logic, computational thinking, and analytical reasoning: basic skills to develop a strong problem-solving and critical-thinking mindset.


Robotics Helps Students Discover New Passions and Career Paths


One of the most positive things about robotics is that when using them in a classroom, you are not only teaching robotics principles, you are introducing engineering, mathematics, technology, science, creativity and much more to your class.


By giving your students the opportunity to explore a wide range of new topics with hands-on activities such as learning with robots, they get to find out about their skills and what they feel more passionate about. While experimenting with robotics students can discover their strengths and start creating a future career path based on what they like, whether that's engineering, programming, math, 3D design, modeling, printing or any other innovative and creative career path.


Robotics Makes Learning Code, Engineering and Math Fun


Robots are fun! One of the reasons robotics is such a valuable tool for students and teachers is because they make learning concepts in subjects that are normally perceived as difficult, like math or coding, easy and fun.


Robotics enables students to understand that engineering, mathematics and code are not just abstract concepts, but they can see, experiment and explore how those concepts are reflected in their robot in real life. The hands-on experience robots give can completely change the way students relate to these subjects, making it easier and fun to acquire new related knowledge.


Robotics Promotes Teamwork


Using robotics as a pedagogical tool contributes to teachers’ quests to provide learning environments where students become protagonists in the construction of their own knowledge.


When working on a robotics project with your class, students will notice the importance of relying on others, respecting their ideas, and valuing everyone’s contribution so that they start building new knowledge together and achieve the proposed goal using trial and error, analysis, and teamwork as a source of learning.


Robotics for students can become a tool to help them understand abstract and complex concepts in the STEM area while allowing the development of basic life skills such as teamwork, critical thinking and problem-solving. Robotics in the classroom introduces technical knowledge in a simple and fun way, achieving a true transformation in the comprehensive preparation and training of both girls and boys for the ever-changing future.
