RobotsLAB Launches Box
Feb 11, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
RobotsLAB announced Box, a new product that is allowing teachers to use quad-copters, robotic-arms and rovers to teach math and science using dedicated educational apps aligned with mandated standards.
"We are bridging this gap using robotics," said Elad Inbar, CEO of RobotsLAB, in a release. "Students are much more engaged and excited when seeing abstract subjects, like Algebra, coming to life using robots. This repeating feedback has inspired us to create the Box."
The product use robotics technology as a teaching-aid for STEM topics. A standards-aligned curriculum was developed with educators; each lesson is an app on the included tablet which controls the robots in the package. Every module comes with an instructional video, a demonstrative touch-based lesson, a quiz, and supplemental teaching materials.
The company set out to create a solution for schools; equipping the Box with several robots: AR.Drone the Quadcopter, Sphero the Robotic Ball, ArmBot the Robotic Arm and Mobot the Mobile Robot that demonstrate core concepts in Algebra, Physics, Geometry, Trigonometry and Calculus.
The Standard edition of the Box comes with 50 lessons, four robots, one tablet, 12 accessories and one year warranty, all in a transport case.
