Educational Opportunities

Robot Revolution features engaging educational resources that meet today’s learning needs. Created by the Museum’s Center for the Advancement of Science Education, the Robot Revolution pre- and post-visit lessons and field trip worksheet are linked to what students are learning in the classroom.

The exhibit is designed to increase student interest and involvement in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) topics, particularly the field of robotics. Students in kindergarten through 12th grade will learn 21st-century skills and STEM content as they envision their own role in creating and using technology.

Robot Revolution is aligned with Next Generation Science Standards, including:

  • Science and engineering practices like developing and using models, and constructing explanations and designing solutions.
  • Crosscutting concepts like cause and effect, systems and system models, and structure and function.
  • Disciplinary core ideas like engineering design (ETS1) and waves and their applications in technologies for information transfer (PS4).

Classroom Lessons

To enhance a Robot Revolution field trip, teachers can use free classroom lessons before and after their visit.
