Advocates cite benefits of learning robotics among children

August 14, 2019

Enrollees watch in awe as they are shown a robot developed by TechKnights Robotics.

Children in DMCI Homes’ Rhapsody Residences condominium community in Muntinlupa City recently underwent a robotics workshop to expose them to fun concepts that could someday help them in pursing their own professional careers.

Organized by TechKnights Robotics, the three-day training program held last July 6, 13, and 20, aimed to teach enrollees aged 8-14 years old practical application of theories and principles of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. 

James Ryan Duque, program creator and director of TechKnights Robotics said the course can help increase awareness and understanding among students of the potential and power of robotics in solving day-to-day challenges.

“At a young age, students should know trial and error. And they should have a positive background on how to problem solve. Will they quit if things are not working? Will they stop if things are not resolved?” Duque pointed out.

 

Teaching robotics one child at a time to instill a future-oriented and innovative mindset among the young is the ultimate goal of James Ryan Duque (middle) in establishing the TechKnights Robotics program.

“Developing new ideas like making a robot to fix the bed for them can bring about a lot of collaborative skills, a lot of leadership skills that will allow them to innovate more and create more. So encouraging these young children to actually understand the concepts of robotics will trigger so many skills that they will share vitally in pursuing their profession,” he continued.

Rhapsody Residences unit owner and TechKnights Robotics founder and managing partner Kit Almeda for his part thanked DMCI Homes for helping promote robotics which is projected to become prevalent among industries and households in the future.

“It’s a privilege to be partnering with DMCI Homes. I think having DMCI Homes as a partner in helping us move forward robotics, is a validation of where the future is headed since DMCI Homes is a company which always looks at innovation, creativity and foresight. Those are the things that bring together DMCI Homes and TechKnight Robotics,” Almeda said.
