As technology evolves ever more quickly in all aspects of modern living, it is important that the next generation know as much as possible about design, electronics, programming and integration in order to stay competitive. This is why robotics is becoming increasingly important at all levels of education.
At ROBOTICKTICK it is our mission to give as many young people all the opportunities to develop their creativity and problem solving skills in a fun and engaging way.
We do this by organizing robotics competitions through World Robot Olympiad. Each season they have a new theme and they have challenges that are tailored to the age of the participants. Starting as low as 6 or 7 years old up to University level.
WRO tournaments are organized in over 75 countries worldwide and each season new countries join the movement.
We proudly are the national organizer of the World Robot Olympiad Association in Oman WRO is a non-profit organization. All revenue from sponsorships and fees is invested in support of their mission, which is to promote robotics in STEM education worldwide. accompany us to the WRO 2020 competitions.
The coming decade will be defined by the largest workforce transition in the history of mankind. Millions of jobs will be lost to technology, while millions of new jobs will be created. Perhaps more importantly, the vast majority of remaining jobs will be transformed and applicants with robotics literacy and strong tech skills will have a significant advantage when applying for jobs across virtually all industries.
It’s not just that “we’ll need more roboticists” (although that is definitely true)… ALL our students need to be gaining robotics literacy and stronger STEM skills.
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)
Roughly 80% of the jobs created in the next decade will require skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). In addition, these will be among the most high paying jobs in society with the greatest opportunities for further career advancement. Yet, globally only 1% of graduates pursue STEM-related fields. This is truly an educational crisis of global proportions.We face a worldwide shortage of STEM graduates because we are failing to excite and motivate our youth to pursue rewarding STEM careers. The Roboticktick exists to close that gap by making robotics challenges and competitions affordable, accessible, educational, fair, and fun for all kids.
Our hands-on, comprehensive lesson plans come in a range of lengths and challenge levels. From the earliest of learners to high-school students, the lessons are developed and aligned to curriculum standards worldwide.
ROBOTICKTICK Early Learning solutions help prepare children for both school and life by building their social skills and allowing them to begin their STEAM journey early on – with opportunities that strengthen emotional learning, literacy, early engineering and coding skills.
The hands-on learning tools in this developmental level channel students’ creativity and jump-start their STEAM engagement. Our Primary solutions are designed to introduce students to STEAM concepts while improving collaboration, communicating and problem-solving skills.
Using smart bricks and digital tools, students at this developmental level can explore coding, programming, and engineering. Our secondary solutions help students develop critical-thinking skills, expand their creativity and explore real-life STEAM themes.
Roboticktick Solutions for primary school provide the engaging, hands-on experiences students need to explore core STEM concepts and link them to real-life phenomenon. LEGO® bricks, programming tools, and supporting lesson plans for teachers ignite students natural curiosity, helping them develop essential communication, creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking-skills in a fun and exciting way. Tactile, flexible solutions grow with students as they problem-solve and discover how science, technology, engineering, and math affect their everyday life.
Roboticktick Wants every teacher to succeed using our solutions in the classroom by providing confidence-building, engaging and playful training. In sessions targeted to specific LEGO education solutions, certified trainers, coach educators on how to integrate LEGO solutions into their existing STEM curriculum, offer the opportunity to experience lessons from a student perspective, and give teachers the tools they need to apply the LEGO education hands-on learning philosophy to their lesson plans.
Competitions and showcases are a highly motivating and engaging way for students of all age groups to develop and display their skills in Science & Technology. Working as a team, students cooperate, collaborate and build the teamwork skills needed for success in a changing workforce.
