Educational Robotics for Physically Active Youth (P.A.Y.)Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Physically Active Youth (P.A.Y.), in Katutura, Namibia, aspires to improve education in Namibia through the inclusion of project-based learning and STEM concepts. The goal of this project was to develop a hands-on robotics curriculum to inspire STEM, with a supplemental toolkit for P.A.Y. staff to support classroom instruction. We fundraised to obtain VEX IQ robotics kits, and developed 27 engaging robotics lessons for ages 6-18. We then coordinated feedback from educators to adapt the lessons, and directed student trials to gauge levels of difficulty and engagement. The impact of this project reaches beyond the students at P.A.Y., as this curriculum can be implemented in countless communities by adjusting pacing, and relating the content to relevant real world applications.
