Why Robots For Kids Keep Kids Engaged
Robots for kids aren’t your normal educational tools. In fact, kids typically use books, tablets and laptops. However, many kids don’t find those mediums very engaging.
Robots are incredibly interactive. Instead of just looking at something, they get to engage with it. It’s a new way to embrace technology while having more fun.
Kids are constantly surrounded by technology. However, that often comes in the form of social media, YouTube or playing video games. While the latter two can be educational, kids might still get bored quickly. Or, they’re not learning the right lessons. Robots for kids take the technology they’re used to and make it more hands-on. Instead of just watching, they’re controlling the technology to some extent.
Kids learn and retain far more when they’re enjoying themselves. Why do you think they can remember so much from a video game, but not a history book? This is also why kids learn more from science experiments than books alone.
Robots for kids are designed to keep education fun. Kids might not even realize they’re learning valuable STEM skills. However, with every robot they interact with, they learn something new to build upon.
Kids don’t just follow instructions when playing with robots. They get to try new things. For example, some robots can draw when programmed correctly, such as with the Matatalab Pro Set. Instead of just following directions, robots for kids inspire them to get creative and see what’s possible.
Everyone loves to do things that make them feel and better about themselves. This is why robots for kids are so engaging. They actually help boost self-esteem. In fact, some kids actually see robots as friendly role models. As a result, they see that “nerdy” is actually cool and fun. Consider talking your child to robotics events to further boost their interest and self-esteem when it comes to STEM.
Matatalab offers several kits to help keep kids engaged. The great part is kids as young as three are able to join in on the fun. The Matatalab Coding Set is a great place to start. It’s built for fun and creativity. Play fun games using the included challenge booklets. Use blocks with symbols to even code the robot. It’s simple to start, but highly engaging as kids take on more challenges.
