The project MER – Modelling Educational Robot is meeting the necessity of the 21st Digital Century Society to implement as much as possible in the regular and open curriculum the subject programming and robotics. Robotics helps address the growing demand for teaching science, technology, engineering and maths in schools. By exemplifying technology directly by programming the robot, students also learn about science, engineering, and maths and get an understanding of how these subjects link together. It is enhancing the student’s understanding of what machines CAN and CAN’T do, which is also the best way to address student’s fears in this area. By programming robots, students can discover if they have the aptitude and interest in the job market of the future, and the truth is, that there’s no doubt that there will be a need for people to be involved in programming mechanical devices in the foreseeable future.
