With our increasing reliance on technology, technical literacy, critical thinking and the ability to problem-solve are skills that play a crucial role in a child’s long-term success. The most effective way to develop these skills is to engage children in real-world activities that allow them to build their understanding in meaningful contexts. THE MAKEBOT STEAM Laboratory (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) is a setup within the School ICT Lab which is integrated in the existing curriculum framework. It is a fun, hands-on opportunity for learners’ to code (C, Python/ drag and drop) and engage in various activities using STEAM kits with principles on IOT/AI/ Robotics that improve their technological abilities. Such activities help them to learn to question, explore, experiment, reason, and apply abstract concepts to real world challenges. Tech is a hugely powerful enabler and such platforms inspire and empower young people to create their OWN careers in technology thus enabling students to make the transition from passive consumers of technology to conscious creators.
Makebot offers a complete learning solution from grade 1 – grade 8, which is integrated within the ICT timetable and classes are held through out the year. Children work collaboratively on STEAM kits that are based on the principles of AI/IOT/Robotics and learn coding programming ( C/ Python / drag and drop) and other relevant computational skills. This programme can be cohesive within the curriculum framework of CBSE, ICSE, International Baccalaureate, CIE and state boards It is a turn key solution offered with curriculum, tutorials, learning resources, hand-outs, worksheets, PPT, on-line classes, assessments, trainer manual, teacher’s handbook etc Learners are trained for various in-house, inter-school and state and national level competitions. The teachers are trained during teacher training workshops held during the year and enabled to handle the smooth execution and implementation of classes. Makebot trainers are made available in case of a specific trainer requirement by the school at additional costs.
To offer learner’s the opportunity to hone their skills better in Robotics, after school classes are arranged within the school premises. Short Term duration courses are conducted and classes are held once a week by qualified Steam educators to facilitate interested students to pursue their love for the subject.
There is a pressing demand for STEM workers, not to mention the number of creative fields utilizing STEM information. As schools shift towards a more science, technology, engineering and math-focused curriculum, they’ll be looking for ways to bridge their classes for a holistic learning experience. This is where STEAM takes the lead. We at Makebot conduct workshops for teachers to bridge the existing gap and help teachers to be ahead of their techno native learners.
