Educational robotics is a learning environment in which the people involved are motivated by the design and construction of creations (object that has characteristics similar to those of human or animal life). These creations are given in the first instance and later mental form in physical form, which are built with different types of materials and controlled by a computer system, which are called prototypes or simulations.
The set of educational activities that support and strengthen specific areas of knowledge and skills developed in students through the design, creation, assembly and operation of robots.
The goal of teaching robotics, is to adapt students to current production processes, where the Automation Technology (which is related to the use of mechanical, electronic and computer-based, in the operation and control of the production) plays a very important role. However robotics system is considered beyond a working application.
Educational Robotics focuses primarily on the creation of a robot for the sole purpose of developing a much more practical and didactic motor and cognitive skills of those who use them. This approach is intended to stimulate interest in the hard science and encourage healthy activity. Also ask the child to achieve an organization in group discussions in order to develop social skills, respect each turn to expose and learn to work in teams.
