Why are STEM studies so important?

The importance of STEM in the classroom

The workforce as we know it is going to look vastly different by 2050. Predictions abound from all corners, ranging from doom and gloom all the way to utopian scenarios. At least one thing is  certain: technology and robots will play a significant role.

Today’s kids need to be prepared for the changing nature of tomorrow’s jobs, making STEM in the classroom critically important. It’s not just about core competencies in STEM, though those will be in high demand as companies seek skilled knowledge workers. Understanding the interaction between hardware and software, applying critical thinking to technical environments, technical creativity, the ability to collaborate effectively – all these will become increasingly valued.  Teaching STEM through coding in a classroom environment highlights those connections to kids and familiarizes them with programmatic concepts early on. Ready to lead the revolution in STEM education? Learn more on how to teach coding in the classroom.

How do robotics and coding relate to STEM?

STEM, as everyone knows, stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. But where exactly do robotics and coding fit in? Here’s the short answer: Robotics is commonly used to teach STEM in the classroom because understanding how to build robots requires interdisciplinary skills from all of the core STEM subjects. Adding coding to the mix is a logical step in the evolution of STEM education because kids can learn to use popular programming languages such as Java and Python by maneuvering the robots.

With CoderZ, they begin by solving basic math and geometry problems, progressing in knowledge and skill through a series of structured ‘missions’. The more advanced courses also incorporate engineering and physics. That’s because the virtual robots are designed to behave just like physical ones and are bound to the laws of physics.  Want to know more? Read our tips on how to teach kids robotics.

Why teach coding in the classroom?

Incorporating robots in STEM classrooms has traditionally been costly and complicated because of the hardware involved. CoderZ has removed that complexity, by building a gamified learning platform that includes all the bells and whistles of physical robots, in a realistically-rendered 3D environment.  If you’ve ever wondered how to make teaching coding in the classroom more engaging and accessible, this is it. All you need to get up and running is a computer and an internet connection.

But the benefits of teaching coding in the classroom run deeper. Learning as a group helps kids develop Social- Emotional Learning and 21st Century skills such as critical thinking, team work, and how to give and receive feedback.  Using the visual programming editor Blockly makes it simple for beginners, and removes the intimidation factor, so that students of mixed levels can collaborate in coding projects. That’s a true win-win.
