The link between kids, robotics, and the future
Ayman El Kabbany
How could the parents put their kids on the right road? Ayman is introducing the road where they must have the capabilities to face the unknown upcoming future, not only facing but also joining in developing it. This road is the technology, where he is specifying Robotics and talking about his experience with kids learning robotics.
Introducing children to technology by building robots
Aberystwyth Robotics Club was set up 6 years ago to support young people with no previous experience to explore technology through the medium of building robots. The model has since been uses elsewhere with similar success. This talk gives an insight into why it has worked so well and what the young people gained from building their own robots. Stephen Fearn, the Founder and Club Leader, has a long history of technology outreach and building interactive robots, including Doris the Dalek, a K-9 and an R2D2.
Build Robots to Build Better Kids
Kalai Sankar has spent the past ten years teaching students how to build the best robots possible. But it’s not just about building robots, she explains; it’s about building people who will change the world. Kalai has witnessed this process first-hand. When she first became a robotics coach, her goal was simply to support her two daughters, who as young girls had few options beyond dolls to feed their minds and imagination. As one of the few women of color to embrace robotics coaching, however, Kalai had to overcome an array of assumptions and biases. Determined to reach students from underserved communities, she began holding weeklong robotics camps for Title I students, proving that robotics education can help lift children up and out of poverty. Kalai saw, too, how students who struggle in traditional educational settings can often find a greater sense of purpose and direction when they learn to build robots as part of a team. As Kalai notes: Building robots is ultimately about building kids better.
