Robotics is an excellent skill for future career development
Programming and other IT-based skills have become an integral part of our modern workforce. With more and more companies switching over to IT-based systems, and with services becoming increasingly complex and customised to meet the unique needs of countless industries, the demand for these skills is only increasing.
Robotics teaches problem-solving skills
To succeed in robotics takes patience; the courage to work through mistakes; and problem-solving skills. By teaching your child robotics, you are giving them the perfect environment to learn all of these things. If your child is frustrated, throwing the robot will only undo all of their hard work. It forces them to work through complex logic problems and will improve crucial puzzle-solving skills.
Robotics prepares them for a technological future
Even if your child never takes to robotics, and they find that they prefer more artistic, sporty, or humanitarian subjects, teaching them a little about robotics is still a beneficial endeavour. Our society is becoming increasingly technologically driven. Although our generation could get away with learning the bare minimum when it came to technology, the same cannot be said for our children. Being computer literate is now mandatory in many fields, and increasingly we are seeing that 3D printing, drones, and advanced machinery are becoming more and more common in various working environments.
