Do you know why kids must learn robotics?
Going in and out of the parking building, a card and an automatic barrier manages traffic instead of the cashier. Computer applications compute and analyze numbers and spreadsheets speeding up the work of an accountant. Easy drag and drop websites makes anyone a layout artist and create their own poster, calling cards and announcements. Voice prompted software enables the user to dictate notes and even dial a contact without having to touch the phone.
This is not the future, this is now. We are in the future and machines will continue to replace menial jobs until the world looks a lot like your favorite sci-fi movie.
Where will you be when this happens? Will you just passively watch machines take over? Wouldn’t it be better if you were part of the brain, the system that creates, programs and develops the future? With an education franchise that specializes in robotics, you can play an active part of shaping this inevitable and exciting future with children. Our children, after all, are the future.
Entrepreneur and billionaire, Jaime Zobel De Ayala, said in a speech that there will be an increasing demand for specific technical skills – from programming to other areas of computer science. Alarmingly, at least 1.1 million jobs in then Philippines will disappear by 2028 as rapid technological innovations force workers to adapt or go unemployed. Year 2028. This is 9 years into the future. How old will your child be this coming 2028? 20? 21? 25? He just graduated from college. Without global knowledge in robotics and technology, how difficult will it be to find a job or be a leader in innovation? Do we want our children to be helpless in the future? Of course not.
Robotics is the application of math, science, engineering and technology. This study fosters innovation, which is a critical skill that our children must master to success in life. SMET robotics program will allow children to learn a number of skills they can use in the real world like critical thinking, creativity and. problem-solving skills. These are 21st Century skills a child needs to learn to stay competitive. Now in the midst of automation, our world will need more young innovators to excel in robotics and automation so that in the future, they can have the skills to invent their own!
The Department of Education supports the inclusion of robotics in the current curriculum. In fact, it is offered as an elective in high schools due to the K-12 program, Robotics becomes a significant part of the school curriculum. More children can now potentially excel in this field. However, the K-12 program, being relatively new, needs supplement programs like SMET Robotics Program. Only some of the schools can match your child’s hunger for a deeper understanding of robotics as the focus, resources or time dedicated by the school for this elective varies. With more demand, there is an expected clamor for better resources and out of school programs.
The SMET Robotics Program from Singapore, can supplement, if not, surpass the robotics knowledge Filipino children can have in school. The SMET program is open for franchising anywhere in the Philippines and what better investment this is? Not only can you be an instrument to better the Filipino children’s future, but you’re also banking on a business that has a ready market.
