Most of the fastest-growing occupations over the next 10 years will require science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) backgrounds. Robots are changing the fields of manufacturing, health care, national defense, agriculture, transportation and more.
The global robotics industry is projected to grow to $30 billion by 2016 and will create one million jobs in the next five years.
RoboRAVE International gives students entry into this global industry and other STEM careers. That’s why our motto is, “Today’s Play, Tomorrow’s Pay.”
"RoboRAVE International is the best robotics competition because it is affordable and (as a team leader) so easy to organize and coordinate… The preparation for the competition is easy to follow and engaging and the day of the event is an absolute blast for the kids."
Standards, S.T.E.M. & Robotics
Robotics is the #1 educational tool for integrating science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Understandable, predictable and measurable, robots require students to quantify speed, weight, mass, distance, and time. They give opportunities to analyze data, to reason sequentially and to apply logic. Analyzing speed versus torque or comparing rates in fractions per second puts physics and math in context.
We include language arts. We’re focused on STEM, but we know an engineer must communicate effectively. By writing engineering reports, creating videos of their robots, and communicating with local businesses, students learn to communicate more effectively and technically.
