CoderZ Engages Students in STEM, Robotics and
Coding and includes curriculum and teacher resources.
At the Cyber Robotics Coding Competition (CRCC)
students are motivated to compete online and learn robotics.
Engaging Students in STEM and Robotics
CoderZ is an online educational environment that improves students 21st century skills, while they are having fun programming their own virtual cyber robot.
Why are STEM and CS Important for Kids?
Computers and technology are everywhere. Studying science, technology, engineering and math gives kids valuable skills for the future and develop life-skills like computational thinking, critical thinking and problem-solving as well.
STEM and CS education focuses on how to approach complex problems, break down the challenges into small pieces and approach resolving them in a logical manner – critical skills for any career path.
Gamification – Learning Can be Fun
Gamification is used to get students involved in classroom activities and encourage them to learn. Using Game-like learning motivates participation, engagement, and adds fun to the learning process.
The technique is most successful when the technology is well-built and is used to achieve well-understood goals. The Cyber Robotics Coding Competition uses level based competition to learn to code making it more fun and social to learn.
Girls Can Code – Bridge the Gap
According to recent research, only 27% of students taking an AP Computer Science exam in the U.S. are female.
The gender gap only gets worse: Just 18% of American computer-science college degrees are conferred on women.
It’s time to dissolve this disparity. Promoting women in STEM enables girls to take advantage of their opportunity and break through the biases
How To Introduce Coding to all Students?
The popularity of coding in school is growing rapidly following the jobs trend in industry. Learning how to code at a young age can truly set up your child for a lifetime of success.
Since coding can be gamified, kids at early age can start learning how to code using visual coding interfaces. Programing a virtual Lego robot, with inputs (sensors) and outputs (motors) can give all students the opportunity to get into coding without having any prior knowledge in programming or robotics.
What CoderZ Users Say
Girls in STEM
CoderZ Is Fun
“It’s exciting to see kids so engaged in learning skills that are going to be important for their future. They’re learning, but they’re having fun at the same time.”
“CoderZ reducing the need for robotics kits and pieces. This has helped us cut equipment expenses to a minimum and, even better, our teachers need no specialized training to teach robotics classes, which cuts the costs even more”
“Coding and robotics are incredibly important areas for students to pursue to support our economic growth and development, .Competitions like the CRCC engage and excite students so they become invested in their learning.”
“West Virginia’s Cyber Robotics Coding Competition finally levels the playing field and ensures that every student can participate in our fastest-growing STEM sport, robotics.”
“It was very challenging, but I had fun, I could see myself doing this in the future.”
