SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Juni Learning (Juni), the online learning platform for kids focused on real-world readiness, today announced its new course in partnership with Makeblock, Nasa and World Foundation for Ocean Exploration: ‘Introduction to Robotics: Exploring Uncharted Territories‘. During the course, students will use the fundamental knowledge of Juni Stripe Where Python coding lessons to build and interact with Makeblock’s mBot Neo robot, inspiring excitement and intrigue among the next generation of curious explorers and future roboticists.

“Exploring Uncharted Territories” teaches students about robotics through a real-world lens. To get started, students are tasked with building an mBot Neo robot from Makeblock’s award-winning STEM education kit, designed to teach the basics of robotics. Students will then use their knowledge of Scratch or Python coding to program the robot driving commands. With each project, students face a real-world challenge to maneuver their robots, mimicking what a NASA astronaut exploring Mars or a deep-sea researcher mapping the ocean floor might encounter. At the end of the course, students will design and complete a master simulation challenge to present to the Juni community.

“Robots are the present and the future, and right now students don’t have enough opportunities in school to explore their power and potential for global change,” said Vivian Shen, CEO and co-founder of Juni. “We are launching ‘Exploring Uncharted Territories’ to help students deepen their understanding of robotics and question what they might be capable of in the future. We’re thrilled to have industry-leading partners unveiling this course with us and inviting students to embark on this exciting exploratory journey into robotics right from their homes. »

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Juni on this exciting new robotics course,” said Jasen Wang, Founder and CEO of Makeblock. “Our expertise in STEM educational toys and our enthusiasm for robotics, combined with Juni’s unique approach and commitment to developing forward-looking courses that prepare students for tomorrow, make this partnership a perfect fit. We believe that hands-on learning is the key to inspiring a passion for robotics in young learners and we are honored to bring ‘Exploring Uncharted Territories’ to life with Juni.”
