Back to School: STEM’s Impact on Developing Future Roboticists

For more than 20 years, educators have encouraged the teaching of a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) curriculum to address the next generation of workers, which includes developing the world’s next roboticists and artificial engineering experts.As students in North America begin to return to school, educators continue to stress bringing robots and robot education into classrooms. Unfortunately for many students, robotics programs and curricula vary across school districts, often heavily dependent on gender, socio-economic conditions, and even racial demographics. To get an overview of the state of STEM education in 2019, Robotics Business Review spoke with Steve Coxon, Ph.D., an associate professor of the Online Education program at Maryville University in St. Louis. He is also the executive director for Access and Achievement at the university. Dr. Coxon’s expertise includes educational development in STEM, alongside the development of robotics curricula and programming for young and gifted students.
