Robotics STEM Education Initiative for Schools

Pakistan Science club Initiative for Schools Robotics STEM Education program with the theme

Robotics Inspires Students to Become Tech Innovators

Unlike other high priced robotic kits, Pakistan Science Club has designed an inexpensive kit for the students which has wide range of possibilities and easy to use. It will not only be worthwhile to comprehend the robotics, its working and application in everyday life but it will also add to Hands-on skills and expertise.

Students will understand:

  • learn and explore robotics starting from basic mechanical robot to the advanced line follower and sonar robot.
  • Basic designing method involving physical and mechanical structure of robot.

Robotics STEM Program comprises of different levels

1 Foundation levels

Appropriate for ages 6+ years
