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
