RODNI _ A NEW WAY OF INTERESTING YOUNG PEOPLE IN STEM SUBJECTS
An exciting project for STEM education. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
This project enthuses young students Year 5 to Year 9 (9-13 years) about the world of programming and micro controllers and shows them that it is both interesting and accessible.
It is a modular programme built around the Arduino and is designed to deliver quick success whatever the level of the student. The pieces allow for wide creativity and demonstrate that coding is not just for nerds but is fascinating and useful for everyone.
The objective is to excite young students about the possibilities that these inexpensive micro-controllers bring and encourage them to start exploring them on their own, increasing their interest in science and technology as a career choice.
The Rodni project has been developed in association with STEM Team East, an education charity that promotes STEM in schools. More information on STEM Team East can be found at http://www.stemteameast.org.uk
