ISTE 2016 Brief

Preview: RobotLAB to Unveil Robotics Curriculum at ISTE

RobotLAB will announce a new robotics curriculum for K-12 during the ISTE 2016 conference taking place next week in Denver.

Full details will be released next week. For now, the company is saying the new offering will include curriculum and learning activities focused on humanoid robots.

"Many educators are struggling to engage students with core subjects, especially with math and science," according to RobotLAB. "As a result, the nation's STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) gap is growing wider and wider.... To bridge this gap, and as an important component of their curricula, many schools and school districts are using RobotLAB's technology and programs to develop reading, writing, math, programming and computationa thinking skills for students."

Deer Park ISD is one of RobotLAB's customers, and a video explaining how they use robotics in their curriculum can be seen below.

RobotLAB is exhibiting in booth 1131 at the ISTE 2016 convention.
