Robotics Course Online Learning Kids Robochamps Brightchamps Next Gen Skill Benefit Course

I recently came across a report that inspired me. According to some estimates, by 2025, the time spent on existing areas of work will be split 50-50 between humans and machines. It is impressive to think that we as a species have created technology so advanced that it can literally take over the physically taxing parts of modern work and life. This revolution should surprise none of us. Just look around you: the influence of machines and robots is palpable in all aspects of our lives.

Robotics: Present and Future

Toys and teaching aids for children, vacuum cleaners in homes, assembly lines in factories that assemble the devices we use every day, medical instruments that save millions of lives each year, drone delivery experiments and, my favorite , machines used for space exploration – all have robotics at their heart. Believe me when I say this, the prospect of learning, working with, and building something new in the world of robots remains the highlight of most of my days.

This sentiment is not unique to me and is shared by many people around the world. The global robotics industry was valued at nearly $28 billion in 2020 and is expected to exceed $73 billion by 2026, with Asia-Pacific being its largest market.

What is robotics?

I’ll try to keep the answer simple – robotics is a combination of science, technology, engineering, and math with the goal of creating intelligent machines.

As a discipline, robotics includes the study of artificial intelligence, machine learning, circuits and signaling systems, functional robotics, the Internet of Things, kinematics and humanoids, bio-inspired robotics… and much more.

It is becoming increasingly clear that knowledge of robotics will be an important, perhaps even basic, skill for generations to come. It therefore follows that diving into the world of robotics appears to be a necessary step for children today.

Globally and in India, we’ve seen millennial parents recognize the long-term benefits of enrolling their children in online robotics and coding courses.

Robotics: a gadget? Or does it have real value?

So, let’s tackle the big, heavy elephant in the online education room – do robotics and technology teach more about buzzwords and marketing gimmicks than real value? As the manager of RoboCHAMPS, the robotics arm of BrightCHAMPS, the easiest thing for me to do would be to say NO. But that’s not who we are, so I’ll say it – yes, it may be a marketing gimmick. That’s why it’s important for parents to really, really, deeply understand what their child can get out of it.

There is no doubt in my mind that every child can acquire a multitude of tangible and intangible skills such as motor skills, problem solving, cognitive abilities, conceptual thinking, technological and research aptitude, technology correlation and leadership, and many more by immersing yourself in robotics and other industry-inspired technology training.

But tossing out impressive words is not why I am writing this all-important article.

Things get murky and fanciful when parents are lured into emotional traps with wild dreams instead of realistic goals and clear paths to achieving them.

So let me make it clear that there is no robotics class – online or offline – that can suddenly turn every kid into a genius-scientist-inventor.

What a good course – designed, created, monitored and regularly updated by qualified experts – can offer is to guide a child down a path that uncovers their innate sense of curiosity and curiosity and, more later, to improve it through the discipline of critical thinking to find the best routes to solving a real-world problem using technology.

Along this path, a strong course with a long-term view of desired learning outcomes will also provide your child with regular opportunities for international exposure and multicultural student collaborations, as the world is now a global village. But at the end of the day, ALL of the concepts, skills, and enablers I mentioned above serve the one very simple purpose of teaching children how to think and have confidence in their thoughts, not what to think. So please choose your child’s learning partners wisely.

What I wish parents understood more than anything is that robotics is a tool. A very powerful tool, but a tool nonetheless. And like any tool, it takes patience, dedication and perseverance to master it.

Robotics lessons: how does it benefit children?

I could go on and on about the proven benefits of a good one-on-one robotics course for kids. I’m not even talking about neurotypical children here. There is so much research on the many ways that online robotics training that focuses on learning through play and hands-on instead of instructional instruction can help neuro-divergent children.

In my humble opinion, the most life-changing one allows children facing social and learning challenges to feel more secure in their learning environment. And also learn essential life skills much faster and without the stress they would otherwise have had to experience.

I have always believed that the true purpose of technology is not just to make life easier for humans, but to help make the world a more welcoming and inclusive place for those who will inherit it after us.

So I leave you with this last question: what do you want for your child? Rapid assembly of robots based on instructions or a slow but deep understanding of the principles behind each creation? Your answer will tell you which robotics course is most likely to satisfy you.
