Teachers, Looking to Improve Your Lessons? RobotLAB Offers You a Hand… a Robotic Hand!

 

New STEM and CTE curricula from RobotLAB include the user-friendly Dobot Robotic Arm to teach Engineering and Coding.

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 29, 2018

The award-winning educational robotics company, RobotLAB, announces today the release of four new curricula on its online learning platform – Engage! K12, for the DoBot Robotic Arm.

This user-friendly and multifunctional robotic arm is a state-of-the-art solution for implementing hands-on engineering, CTE and computer science classes. It helps students prepare for their careers and college readiness as it brings real-world implementation of the concepts being taught. It can be programmed using multiple coding languages such as Python, Java, C# and C++ as well through a blockly-based graphical programming interface for beginners.

“The robotic arm is really 5 robots in 1!” Said Samantha Baker, curriculum designer and product hacker at RobotLAB. “The array of attachments and the huge selection of apps to control and program it means it can be adapted to so many classes and ability levels, also the teacher resources on Engage!K12 allow any teacher to include engineering concepts in their classroom, regardless of their experience level.”

RobotLAB’s online learning platform Engage! K12 now offers more than 50 engaging instruction-hours across four courses. The different lesson plans are aligned with Common Core and NGSS standards, and are designed for teachers, by teachers. The lessons cover Computer Science, Engineering, Collaborative Problem-Solving and Creative Thinking. The use of the robotic arm in these lessons is an integration of programming, mechanics, electronics, and automation. It’s a great STEM teaching aid that reinforces knowledge across multiple subjects and engaging the students.

The lessons put to use the five different attachments that come with the Dobot Advanced Educational Pack: A Gripper, Vacuum Suction Cap, 3D Printing head, Laser Engraver and a drawing tool. All in a classroom and educational context, that truly engages the students.

Educators can create a free account on Engage! K12, and start using the lessons immediately. They can assign activities to students, and track their progress on the included dashboard. Each teacher can invite unlimited number of students to participate in the lessons.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
