Coding and robotics – The stimulators of the new-age learning

  • When children are exposed to different technological devices, they develop an interest in exploring them. So, if they are introduced to the basics of robotics and programming languages at the right age, it can help to stimulate their creativity and satisfy their curiosity.
  • Traditionally, education was limited to theory-based learning. Even subjects like science, computers and robots which require extensive practical knowledge were restricted to only theoretical knowledge. However, with the integration of technology into teaching-learning practices, students can now relate the theory to its practical aspects.
  • Schools have started realising the need to keep up with the demands of the tech world and are thus incorporating coding and robotics in the curriculum to make students future-ready. It not only helps to develop students’ interest in science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics but also enhances their 21st-century skills.

What is the purpose of Robotics and Coding in a curriculum?

Coding is essentially written instructions that a robot or computer program can read and then execute. Students must determine the task they want to complete through a robot, design the code to make it happen, and then send it to the robot to view the outcome. Robotics allows students to see their thinking in a real way as they go through trial and error until the task is accomplished and the robot’s motions are performed as originally intended.

Benefits of learning coding and robotics



Coding and robotics foster out-of-the-box thinking by enabling children to give shape to their imagination and make the best use of theoretical concepts.


21st-century skills

Activities like designing robots, programming various movements and finding and fixing bugs enable children to develop several 21st-century skills such as critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication.



Designing, developing and programming robots is a challenging task. When children work through complicated situations, they develop a strong and determined attitude to achieve their goals.


Decision-making ability

There is no fixed method of designing and programming a robot. Therefore, students should be encouraged to think of various possibilities, analyse and use logic and reasoning to come up with the method best suited to their skills. This, in turn, will enhance their decision-making ability and empower them to become independent decision-makers.


Problem-solving ability

Achieving 100 per cent success in designing and programming the robot in the first attempt might not always be possible. Therefore, students should be encouraged to think differently to fix the problems. This will help to develop their problem-solving skills.


Application of knowledge

A subject becomes interesting when theoretical knowledge is complemented with hands-on activities. Thus, it is essential to include practical applications, along with theoretical knowledge, to explore robotics and coding. This makes it easier for students to understand the concept and intricacies of robot programming.
