Technology is critical for innovation, yet schools struggle to get students interested in this area. Could teaching robotics change this? Come join one of our free classes!!! Contact
What is robotics?
Essentially, a robot is a mechanical device that can be programmed to follow a set of instructions.
The robot has a processing unit, sensors to perceive its environment, and motors and actuators to move its limbs or wheels. It may speak, make other sounds, or flash with lights and colours in response to the environment as per instructions.
Robots need the ability to follow programmed instructions and not just be controlled remotely.
Why Robot Birthing Unit (RBU)?
We at RBU believe there is considerable anecdotal evidence that students respond well in subjects involving programming of robots.
Robots lend themselves to do-it-yourself activities. For example, a colleague builds robots using a 3D printer and uses his smart phone as an interactive device to communicate with the printed robot.
Our mission to make this knowledge common in our students.
