At ROBOTERRA, we love robots. We love robotics, we love mechanics, and certainly love programming. But as much as we love robots, we love people even more. Nuts, bolts, sensors, and motors are fantastic, but ambition, creativity, collaboration, and ingenuity are even better!
Our vision at ROBOTERRA is to create a space where robotics and people can come together in perfect harmony. With the Origin™ Kit, the next generation of STEM innovators has a platform not only to develop robots, but also to develop their own skills.
At ROBOTERRA, we believe that good robots are built with technical elements, but great robots are built with the human element - a sum greater than its parts alone.
ROBOTERRA cultivates creativity through two channels—hardware and software; students learn mechanical and electrical engineering skills through the Origin™ Kit, as well as programming skills through the CastleRock™ online learning platform. Rather than achieving a predetermined result, students instead utilize their creativity to build their own robots.
Collaboration will be a crucial skill for success in the 21st century. ROBOTERRA provides a physical and online platform in which students can communicate, share ideas, and challenge each other to build new, innovative robots. Through this process, the next generation of STEM innovators will be able to develop interpersonal skills as well as technical skills.
ROBOTERRA robots do not come with instruction manuals - they are not prescribed - they are the products of students’ own imaginations. Therefore, students must utilize their own ingenuity to determine if a problem has been “fixed” based on their own understanding of the robot, rather than looking up an answer found in the back of a textbook.
