Theoretical Framework

WaterBotics®



is based upon the educational theory of social constructivism which situates learning in dynamic, iterative, and authentic context. 
(Piaget, 1952; Vyotsky,1962)

Constructivist Based Environment

Learners build upon their prior knowledge and draw upon the learning of others within the community as well as new knowledge gained through experiential practice.

"Science is more than a school subject, or the periodic table, or the properties of waves. It is an approach to the world, a critical way to understand and explore and engage with the world, and then have the capacity to change that world..."

President Barack Obama, March 23, 2015

ABOUT ROBOTICS

 

Enhance science, technology, engineering, & mathematics (S.T.E.M.) education for students by integrating engineering and computer programming into the curriculum.

 

Educational robotics provides an opportunity to capture the interests of students and introduce them to a new world of engineering and technology.  Robotics facilitates active learning and promotes active reasoning and critical thinking. Robotics enhances students' interest and motivation to pursue more complex and abstract subjects.

Active Learning Cycle (ALC)

 

The ALC model engages students to be active learners and presents engineering concepts in relevent and real-world context which immerses students in authentic engineering based activites.
