Robotics for STEM skills development

There are many STEM skills development and education technology solutions available today.  The reason we opt for robotics is because of the physical real time feedback it offers.

While learners (young and old) play with the robots, they gain valuable experiential knowledge about programming, physics (levers, pulleys, friction and so on) and problems solving.

Once a student learns and understands the basics, they get encouraged to discover and explore new possibilities and push their own boundaries.  By allowing and encouraging mistakes to be made on a regular basis, students gain confidence and become more curious and excited.

STEM Skills development - STEM vs STEAM

The CRC solution

The CRC offer robotics coaching, mentoring and consulting for young and old.  We focus on developing STEM skills in young learners as well as adults who may need to up-skill or re-skill.

For learners one of our goals are to help produce top performing WRO and FIRST teams, coaches, mentors and robots.

For adults, we have tools and programs to gain basic technical skills, increased confidence in your own technical abilities and the space to develop your STEM skills at your own pace and time.

The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!  I am looking forward to this journey that I am embarking on and I hope you will join me.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

CRC (Centurion Robotics Club) was started from the need for coaching and mentoring of kids (young and old – no exclusions) in the fields of STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) through the use of robotics.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (commonly referred to as STEM) form the basics of just about everything we do these days and it is all around us.  Even when you are out and about in the mountains and surrounded by nature – science is there.

If you’d like to know more about STEM specifically, please visit the STEM Blog South Africa – I have been working on it for quite some time.

In the picture above is a Lego Mindstorms EV3 robot – more info on this can also be found on my STEM Blog.  At CRC we are open minded about the technology we use for our training and coaching, but the aim is not to re-invent the wheel.

We want to help prepare coaches, mentors and teams to perform as best they can for WRO and FIRST competitions in South Africa and abroad.

WE ARE INDEPENDENT OF ANY OR ORGANISATION AND FOCUS SOLELY ON PRODUCING THE BEST RESULTS FOR ANYONE WE COACH, MENTOR OR CONSULT FOR.

Please get in touch – we hope to hear from you soon
