Robotics: Not Just R2D2


Having a discussion with a fellow commuter. He asks, “Why teach robotics?”

I responded by pointing out all the things we rely on everyday that use autonomous motion. There are plenty of other reasons for sure but at the middle school level robotics can provide the bridge for future civil engineers and inventors to come up with better traffic control.

Just a thought.
