STEM – Robot Revolution

There is a crisis in education with STEM subjects being chosen less at ‘A’ level – 70% girls and 50% boys decide not to study STEM subjects after GCSE.

The Bright Futures Experience ‘Robot Revolution’ programme is guaranteed to get students excited about STEM!

OVERVIEW & AIMS

Our fast-paced, interactive introduction is jam-packed with short activities and quizzes covering key robotics concepts such as their origins and basic principles, and the diverse application of robotics in the modern world. Then the fun really starts…

The impressive robotics kit we provide will inspire your students to get involved.  They will learn how to build, operate and code robots by taking part in ‘hands-on’ team challenges.

The Bright Futures Experience ‘Robot Revolution’ also helps students to make the link between a growth sector in our economy (robotics) and having good future job prospects.

This engaging workshop introduces students to robotics in a fun way.  It delivers brilliant learning on STEM, employability prospects and social skills through collaborative team working.

IN THIS PROGRAMME, YOUR STUDENTS WILL:

• Gain an introduction to robotics
• Build and code an electronic robot
• Take part in competitive robot games
• Explore the origins of Robots
• Experience an ancient robot challenge
• Learn about tools and how to use them properly
• Learn about coding and automation
• Learn about sensors and automation
• Design and build robot attachments
• Take control of their robot
• Enjoy kinaesthetic, activity-based learning

LOGISTICS

The Robot Revolution is a flexible workshop that can be delivered to individual classes or an entire year group.

The programme works very well as part of a larger mixed carousel-style event.

Our experienced presenters will provide all the robotics kit, as well as prizes and a P.A. system.

Your school needs to provide a suitable space (or spaces), chairs and tables to accommodate the participating students, a projector and a screen.

This experience can be tailored to suit many different age groups. It can even be adapted to make a fun training day for staff!

Your school will receive a comprehensive evaluation of the learning experience, based on student and staff feedback.

What Students say...

I never thought that I could build a robot from scratch and I did even more than that. I loved the coding bit, it was really frustrating but really cool at the same time. I would like to do more days like this.

What Teachers say...

A thoroughly enjoyable experience using great resources. Goodness knows how much all of that equipment costs! They Bright Futures Experience team ran the whole event and our students were completely engaged for the whole day. I liked how day progressed from the students knowing little or nothing about robotics to being mini roboteers. Thank for such a fab day!
