An Educational Robotics-STEM-Coding Lab to Investigate Cognitive Strategies and to Foster Learning

Our Lab is dedicated both to research and education. As result we are responsible for the academic development of STEAM expertise for students who work closely together with our researchers and academics.

Our research requires cross-disciplinary investigations in several areas such as biologically inspired algorithms, evolutionary algorithms, swarm intelligence, psychology, machine learning, data mining, computational neuroscience and cognitive science, among others.

Cognitive abilities put into action by learners in using a Robotics Serious Game have been investigated and data has been collected by administering a pre and a post-test on motivation and using Project Based Learning (PBL) methodology. Significant results have been acquired on:

  • Students’ motivation in relation to their performance
  • Team work strategy, analyzing the PBL
  • Learning results.

Findings showed that “intrinsic motivation” of the participating students, gathered with a specific questionnaire, was high since the beginning of the Lab experience, corroborating the hypothesis that these cognitive activities are able to stimulate curiosity, interest, enjoyment and to foster the learning also in STEM careers.

Our Makerspace Lab is for Schools, Colleges, Educators and Edupreneurs. To setup lab and more details : https://stemchamp.com/stem-education-franchise/stem-science-education-roboticsand http://stemlab.stemchamp.com

The importance of STEM learning

STEM learning is the teaching and learning of science, technology, engineering and maths and is part of our everyday lives. So why has STEM learning not been as significantly regarded as other subjects such as English?

Why is STEM learning important?

It is important for many reasons. “STEM innovations have been rapidly transforming our everyday lives; from the way we grow our food, to the way we cure diseases, connect with friends and family, and understand the world around us”. “STEM disciplines provides a pathway for children to explore a wide range of exciting areas in science, math, and engineering. Preschool children are naturally interested in science and math. Almost everything young children do involves exploring their world”.

“It’s about developing skills such as creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking, problem-solving and curiosity. These skills are transferable to a wide range of situations that children may face later in life.” Not only this, but “children who engage in science and math regularly develop circuits to make learning in these areas faster and easier”, who believes that the neglect of these skills contributes to children being left behind. “it is key that everyone in society, not just a select few, are confident in engaging with STEM subjects in order to thrive in the modern world.”

What can be done to increase and improve the interest and education in STEM subjects in the early years?

“Children think like scientists. They are naturally curious because everything is new to them” , “Educators and parents will know how many ‘why’ and ‘how’ questions 3-year-olds can express about anything– ‘Why is the sky blue?’, ‘Why do we have two eyes?’, ‘How do fish breathe?’ and so on. However, how often do we treat these questions from children as scientific enquiries based on first-hand observations?”

“Practitioners and parents need to be educated. We know that children learn best when they can they interact with materials and observe the result. When this is accompanied by adult dialogue, they learn even more. Learning in science should be through scientific inquiry.”

“Supportive adults are key to STEM learning, particularly for girls and those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Children need adults who believe that all young people are capable of reaching their full potential. “while engaging with children directly, we also seek to engage and inspire the adults who accompany young children in seeing the value of hands-on STEM learning.”

“Play in early childhood is essential to development”. Having this, “contributes to the cognitive, social and emotional well-being of children.”  To become confident STEM thinkers, children need to play. “Whether play is free or guided by an adult who offers activities inspired by the child’s interests, play is ideal for learning, practicing and developing new skills.”

WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER A STEM SUMMER CAMP

STEM Champ’s summer camps are designed to teach science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to students of all ages in a fun and engaging way. The students learn basic STEM skills while making new friends and improving social skills.

  • Rewarding summer – Many kids spend their summer at home watching TV and sleeping all day. It can be fun for the first few days, but then such pastimes can turn out to be boring for them. Besides, during the summer the kids typically forget most of the basic mathematics and science that they have learned at school. STEM camps can be both a fun and useful activity for your children. They teach the young participants to solve problems, think logically, and be creative.
  • Getting an idea of future careers – More and more prestigious careers require advanced mathematical and scientific knowledge and skills. Being introduced to math and science at an early age will give the youngest students a distinct advantage. Hands-on experiences with STEM activities will enrich them with important knowledge and develop necessary skills. As a result, your child will start making the first steps towards building a brilliant career in the IT, science, engineering, and mathematics spheres. It’s important to think of these not only as STEM summer camps, but also career exploration exercises.
  • An opportunity to get out of their comfort zone – By spending a part of their summer or even most of the summer in unfamiliar surroundings, kids will become more autonomous in the early age. Besides, they will make new friends and learn to work in a team, as many STEM activities involve teamwork in a fun lab setting. 
  • Feeling of self-confidence – In STEM summer camps, your children will be constantly trying out something new and do things that they were previously afraid of doing. As a result, when they return to school after the camp, they will feel more confident regarding the STEM-related subjects.
  • Finding inspiration – The idea of STEM education is to make the kids realize how STEM disciplines can simplify the human lives. The children get inspired for the future and remain excited to learn new things and grow with their experiences

Wake up! It’s Time to embrace STEM Education and STEM Skills

The whole world is witnessing a great Technological revolution. Wireless technologies to Internet of things (IOT), mobility and healthcare to virtual and augmented reality, we are going through rapid advancements in every field. Added to this, automation has been making our lives easier and less dependent on people.  In days to come, it is unarguable fact that Science, Technology, Mathematics and Engineering (STEM) is going to make a livelihood for millions of people.

Indian Economy, driven by IT over the past two decades, is also going to witness a major shift owing to advancements in STEM. An US-based research firm is predicting that India’s IT services industry will lose close to 6.4 lakh (640,000) “low-skilled” jobs to automation in the next five years. The report also stated that 30% of routine, low-value positions are being phased out through automation over the next five years, far outweighing the expected new jobs being created in the medium-high skills area. Clearly, it is time to take a call and develop skills that have future prominence.

It’s the time to embrace STEM and focus on developing right skillset to face next industrial revolution. Developing Skill should be our focus and not the scale. We need to encourage our children to develop a passion towards science, technology and design from an early age since Innovation and creativity are going to be key drivers of Economy. Being a nation that has immense human resources, we have to take right advantage of the situation and embolden our future generations to receive right kind of education in a right way.

The idea of STEM education is to involve kids in creating something worthwhile with their basic knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Their creation could be a solution for millions of people in India. As a developing nation, India needs ideas. If we educate our kids to reach for the moon, they will find a way. The idea is to teach them about using their ‘textbook knowledge’ in a practical approach. Complete education requires a good blend of theory and practical. While theory is required to create a base, it is the practice that will allow the person to grow, think creative and develop an analytical mindset.

The goals of students should shift from getting the highest marks to finding the best solution for an existing problem. They will become more oriented towards doing something for the society, which will work indefinitely in favor of our nation. It is the time we take a call to encourage inquiry-based learning, encourage children to explore and pursue their passions. Every kid is capable of being a STEMCHAMP if the right amount of push is given at right time. Let’s strength our education and our Nation by embracing STEM.

Mom, I engineered a Videogame this summer!

How many of you as a parent would want to hear that? I’m sure some would stop at Videogame and say ‘No’ and others would give more focus to the word Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (#STEM) and say ‘Yes’. So why really there needs to be a conflict between what kids love and what their parents want for them. Ever thought what if we merge them?

If you can’t beat them, join them. From a very long time, research tells us that the video games we play influence our behaviour. While such claims had no effect on a child’s addiction, we came up with something even better. Why can’t we use this fascinating topic of video games, which would help the kids rather than disrupt their development? STEM Champ is bringing a #summer camp #Bangalore that will allow the kids to work with video games technology and learn first-hand about what goes into the game!

Students would learn to think critically about video games, considering some of the important social, psychological, and ethical issues and controversies surrounding them. Then, students will look at how games are designed, engineered and will help students explore careers in programming, graphic arts and illustration, production, and writing. Throughout the project based learning, students will develop and explore their own skills and aptitudes by practicing programming, comparing hardware, and learning about the application of physics in game design. Students will consider the educational applications of games, by practicing and analysing games that require fiscal management, smart urban planning, diplomacy (whether among neighbours, or nations), military management, engineering, storytelling, and long-term and big-picture strategizing. Finally, students will design and present their own games, then exchange feedback with other students.

If playing a game makes your kid a pro, then understanding how to make one makes your child a prodigy! Won’t it be just great to design your own video games characters? Well you get a chance to remove all flaws from your Player 1 and be the Alpha of your own game. Just make sure to tell us all your cheat codes! See you at STEM summer camp!
