UBTECH Robotics announced today the launch of UKIT – a new robotics kit featuring a curriculum aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Its curriculum, developed by experts in their respective fields of science, mathematics and literacy, is designed to teach STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) concepts and skills.
The UKIT curriculum also ties STEM literacy into each unit through a literacy prompt that exemplifies the connection between the lesson content and real-world application. During classes, students collaborate or work independently within their “Big Idea Book” to notebook, make hypotheses, gather data, and formulate questions about how the hands-on activity with the robot applies in a real-world scenario or as scientific phenomenon.
As part of the JIMU ecosystem, the UKIT comes with everything a student in the classroom or at home needs to build and code, including servos, building blocks and an Arduino processor in the advanced kit.
