Kids in govt schools to learn through robotics

Students of two government schools in the City will get a hands-on experience on using robots in curriculum and learning.

The primary schools in Veerabhadranagar and Hosakerehalli are part of a pilot project to introduce robotic education programme called STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in government schools. The Department of State Educational Research and Training (DSERT) signed an agreement with LS Creative Learning Private Limited on Saturday, for the same.

Dr Tairo Nomura from Saitama University, Tokyo, Japan is also part of the collaboration. Once the pilot phase is over, DSERT will conduct an assessment of the programme’s effectiveness, on the basis of which a recommendation will be made on whether or not to extend it to all government schools.  
 
Speaking on the occasion, Renya Kikuchi, president and CEO of Learning Systems Co Limited, said, “STEM education develops children’s interests in science and mathematics naturally, and also improves their problem-solving skills, thinking power and communication skills. We are excited that it has been decided to introduce our programme in government schools for the first time in India.”

David Prakash, director, LS Creative Learning Systems Private Limited, said that the new approach will give better opportunities to many more government school students under the STEM education programme. The STEM education programme is presently underway at Bishop Cotton Boys School, St John’s High School, Indus International School, Baldwin School and Candor International School.

More than 7,000 students are learning under this new teaching method.
