Society and Robotics Education
The youth is always considered as the fresh blood for society. If a society has to survive, people would have to generate new individuals who will soon take over the reins of power in all spheres. Of course, regeneration is easy as it is natural for people to procreate. However, the birth of a new generation may not immediately translate into geniuses of the world. The new generation must be educated so that they will be equipped to take over responsibilities left behind to them by the older generation. The next question is what kind of education must be encouraged or promoted.
Robotics as a Future Trend
It is easy to see where the current stage of development of technology leads to. With the recent breakthroughs, it is expected that robotics would take the center stage in the near future. This can only be possible though if the youth of today have the necessary knowledge in this matter to break through. Who can see to it that this happens? The adults of today. They are the ones who can guarantee that the education youth are getting is related to STEM, particularly in robotics. By promoting programs on robotics, they can encourage the young ones to be intrigued by the role technology plays in future.
Starting them Young
There can be no other better timing for robotics education than when the young are still so much fascinated by it. It cannot be denied that kids as young as 5 years old can already begin to appreciate robots. Since they are already curious at such young age, they can definitely be taught about robotics that soon. Their interest for learning is already whetted by their curiosity. Therefore, they would not mind spending and hour and a half listening to discussions about basic robotics. They would enjoy it even more once they are actually taught how to build robots.
