ROBOTERRA Unveils Quantum Robotics Course at 2016 NSTA Conference
(Nashville, March 30, 2016) RoboTerra will be exhibiting in booth 758 at this year's National Science Teachers' Association (NSTA) National Conference from March 31 to April 3 in Nashville, Tennessee.
At the conference, RoboTerra will launch a new Quantum Robotics Course, an online education platform where teachers use the Origin Kit and CastleRock to teach. This curriculum was designed not only to provide students with a strong background in mechanics and coding but also to inspire their lifelong passion for STEM study. It consists of more than 55 core standards, including 22 math standards such as in geometry and probability, as well as 33 technology literacy standards such as in design and the nature of technology. Moreover, this four-level curriculum is perfect for anyone from beginners to more advanced learners.
There are two aspects of the new Quantum course. "Quantum For Schools" is a perfect solution for schools that are interested in incorporating robotics into their curriculum or extracurricular activities. It can serve as the training and orientation materials for new members of a robotics team. "Quantum Direct," on the other hand, allows science teachers or robotics teams to secure extra funding by teaching RoboTerra's robotics course to anyone interested in robotics.
This product echoes NSTA’s 2016 conference theme, "Science: Empowerment Performance." By introducing this new curriculum, RoboTerra hopes to boost STEM education in middle and high schools in the U.S. with a powerful online education platform designed by engineers and education experts from Columbia and Stanford.
The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), founded in 1944 and headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, is the largest organization in the world committed to promoting excellence and innovation in science teaching and learning for all. NSTA's current membership of 55,000 includes science teachers, science supervisors, administrators, scientists, business and industry representatives, and others involved in and committed to science education.
