Robotics innovator delivers new path forward for students to engage in STEM success
LOS ANGELES – March 14, 2018 – UBTECH Robotics, a global leader in intelligent humanoid robots, is building on its commitment to STEM with a showcase at the 2018 National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The annual event brings together more than 10,000 educators from across the United States to promote excellence and innovation in science teaching and learning for all. As part of NSTA 2018, UBTECH will demonstrate its award-winning line of JIMU Robots that helps kids develop critical STEM skills in a fun, hands-on environment in booth #656. The conference takes place March 15–18, 2018 at the Georgia World Congress Center.
“UBTECH is bringing STEM learning to life with JIMU Robots,” said Jeff Piontek, Head of Education, North America. “By inspiring creativity and innovation through robotics at a young age, we are laying the foundation for a love of STEM that will potentially lead to the pursuit of STEM-related degrees and ultimately careers.”
UBTECH’s STEM-focused curriculum incorporates Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core Standards, allowing students to learn to design, code and engage with robots in a meaningful way. Students acquire key scientific concepts through a hands-on learning experience while gaining critical soft skills including collaboration, team building and communication.
“STEM skills are paramount to success in the 21st century workforce,” said John Rhee, General Manager, North America. “Just 20 percent of today’s workforce possess the skills required to fulfill tomorrow’s jobs. UBTECH is dedicated to closing this STEM skills gap and leading the movement to prepare kids for a brighter future.”
