Hands-on Robotics Education:

Robotics education is arguably one of today's most exciting educational movements. It is bringing a hands-on, project-oriented, team-building approach to learning.

Just in time too. I had the privilege of interviewing Tad Douce, a Middle School teacher here in Marion, Ohio about robot education. He had some interesting perspectives about educational priorities in the schools today. He believes that students need hands-on education now more than ever. That’s part of the reason he founded the National Robotics Challenge, one of the many robotics competitions taking the U.S. by storm.

This 12-category event is happening just down the street from our RobotWorx facility on March 7th and 8th. It’s for students of all ages – from elementary to college. Interested? You can still register throughout the month of February.

We're really excited about the competition and the good it is doing. One of our engineers is lending a hand by judging at this year’s NRC. We’re also opening our building for NRC tours on March 7th.
