Robots and Children

Jun 30, 2014

The more children learn and understand robots the better they will fare in the future. The world is quickly realizing the benefits of industrial robots and has been integrating them for a wide range of applications. Teaching and exposing your children to robots from a young age will help prepare them for the real, robotic world and give them better job opportunities.


Adults have been at the fore­front of robot­ic inno­va­tion for many years, but it may be time for the adults to step aside a bit. Chil­dren are start­ing in robot­ics ear­li­er and ear­li­er, which is giv­ing them skills that no one in the cur­rent gen­er­a­tion was lucky enough to have at such a young age. These future robot tech­ni­cians, sci­en­tists and engi­neers are inter­act­ing the robot­ic world around them every day.

There are sev­er­al robot­ic children’s toys on the mar­ket right now. There are robot­ic dinosaurs and dogs, there are dolls that walk and talk, and even books that read to you. Books like Leap­Pad intro­duce chil­dren to the world of com­put­ers and robot­ics at a very ear­ly age, as do the robot­ic pets like Hap­py Plush pets, which look like stuffed ani­mals, but are robot­ic at the core.

It is not a won­der that a child could get inter­est­ed in robot­ics at an ear­ly age because of this kind of expo­sure. There are mid­dle school and high school aged chil­dren that com­pete every year in robot­ic com­pe­ti­tions world­wide, build­ing their own robots and pro­gram­ming them to per­form a vari­ety of appli­ca­tions. These com­pe­ti­tions, as well as the mid­dle and high school robot­ics clubs and cur­ricu­lum are used to build inter­est and hope­ful­ly move some chil­dren towards a career in robot­ics in their future.

All in all, it is a child’s world today when it comes to robots. They under­stand a lot of the elec­tron­ic devices and robot­ics bet­ter than any cur­rent adult can, and many of them will go on to research and make major robot­ic dis­cov­er­ies for indus­tri­al and oth­er robot tech­nolo­gies in the future.
