STEAM Lab: Intelligent Robot Maker Lab
We advise schools and colleges to setup AI Maker lab through robotics and innovative design to prepare the next generation for Industrialisation 4.0 with robotics for education. We delivered more than 70 STEAM - STEM Lab
workshops for schools in Wales, England, Spain, Malaysia and Thailand between 2018-present.
We deliver the introductory 500-years history of robotics public seminars, and hands-on robotic programming workshops for primary and secondary schools throughout the academic year and term break. All STEAM Lab programmes aims to promote
the interdisiplinary and creative education, putting an "A" (Arts) within the STEM. In addition, we can host See Science-funded Teachers CPD and British Council funded academic placements to visit EUREKA Robotics Centre for training. As STEM Ambassadors for Wales, we deliver yearly robotics competitions for schools across Wales to enhance the STEAM education amongst young people, particularly girls.
