A 21st Century Methodology
Robophysics is a 21st century interdisciplinary methodology of teaching science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and is complementary to the traditional teaching of STEM.
A whole new life environment
Learning by Doing - STEM Education
Today’s evolving technology requires a new way of learning skills for coping with challenges such as complex situations, new systems and problem-solving.
Students are inherently curious yet are prevented from understanding what goes on inside – This remains an enigma – a “black box” that does not reveal its desires, does not allow them to explore, and does not sense these physical principles.
Existing teaching method was designed for the needs of the Industrial Revolution (late 19th century). The Industrial Revolution sees the person “as a robotic manufacturer”.
In “Technology education” approach the skills developed are for monotonous and degenerate maintenance.
Modern view should see the person as “a creative manufacturer with high thinking abilities”.
“Engineering education” tools are of a high standard, far beyond knowledge and understanding which include the capabilities of implant analysis and even synthesis – Building future scientists and engineers equipped for the high-tech environment of the 21st century.
Studies show that pupils of all ages learn best when abstract concepts are presented through a concrete, hands-on approach.
Inquiry based learning (IBL) or hands-on approach has a track-record of 10 years in certain communities in Israel.
This approach yields over 20% STEM graduation per year.
Global shortage of Engineering
According to reports from various countries, there is a shortage of qualified engineers in general across many industries. If the public and the private sectors are not pro-active, this shortage could lead to significant economic losses and collateral damage.
The good news is that there many ‘fixes’ but, given the complexity of the issue, a comprehensive approach is required.
Challenging, low-cost, hands-on, and most of all - fun
An innovative STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education methodology.
Suitable for pupils of all ages, starting from Elementary school (5th grade and up), through Middle school and high school all the way up to science and engineering students at prestigious faculties in the academic institutions.
