EZ-Robot emphasizes the importance of robotics education in a technologically advanced world and demonstrates the largest involvement in the field
Calgary, Alberta, September 8, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – With the rapid implementation of machine learning, artificial intelligence and automation, it is more important than ever for students to learn about robotics and technology.
EZ-Robot addresses this transformation, providing educators with valuable tools to raise STEM and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) education and increase knowledge of artificial intelligence among students.
Why is this important?
“The robotics and artificial intelligence industries are advancing at a pace that far outstrips the number of students graduating from our schools with these literacy skills,” says Dennis Campitz, CEO of EZ-Robot. in all industries. For this reason, it is important that all students acquire literacy in these two technologies, not just those with an engineering mindset.”
The robotics and artificial intelligence industries are expected to grow exponentially in the coming years. Market Research Future (MRFR) forecasts that the global robotics market will reach $214.68 billion in 2030, with a compound annual growth rate of 22.8%.
Despite this paradigm shift in the workplace, schools are struggling to engage students in these subjects. Average high school robotics enrollment is less than 3% for boys and 0.3% for girls.
“Imagine, we are in the midst of the largest workforce transition in history, and in a middle high school with 2,000 students, only 33 are receiving this education, while 1,976 people are not learning anything about these technologies that will change all aspects of society,” Campitz said. It inspires us to reach more young people every day.”
Campitz has taught and demonstrated robotics to more than 20,000 students in classrooms around the world, and schools implementing his strategies for teaching robotics and computer science will see enrollment increase up to tenfold, with girls’ participation exponentially increasing.
“EZ-Robot works to bridge the gender gap in STEM education,” Campitz said, “The way we teach robotics engages a wide range of students, regardless of age, gender, socioeconomic background, or academic ability.”
Among middle school and high school students, the impact is greater, with 90 percent indicating that they would like to learn robotics with the EZ-Robot.
As the world undergoes rapid technological and economic transformation, the World Economic Forum predicts that one billion people will need upgrading skills by 2030. Teaching robotics gives students the skills they will need in an increasingly technological world.
EZ-Robot provides hands-on learning using real-world scenarios and challenges students to use computational and evaluative thinking. Their interactive approach to STEM and STEAM education fosters a highly engaging learning environment that challenges students’ problem-solving skills and advances their cognitive abilities while building confidence and resilience.
