About STEAM Laboratories

Here at STEAM Laboratories, we are passionate about promoting Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) in Ireland through the motivational effects of Robotics.  STEAM Laboratories are the educational face of the Irish Robotics and Special Effects company Mechatrons. We have been delivering lectures, classes and workshops on robotics and coding for over 20 years. Our Professor of Robotics, is the world renowned and award-winning Roboticist Peter Redmond. Peter sets our syllabus and delivers many of the lectures and workshops in person.

Why do a workshop with STEAM Laboratories?

  1. It’s fun

Not many fields of knowledge incorporate creativity and fun simultaneously. Studies have shown that robotics achieves both. In fact, students love to partake in activities in which they have full control, something that is possible with robotics. And when learners are able to do cool stuff, they want to develop more features. Here are STEAM Laboratories, we know how to do fun.

 

  1. Effective way of introducing programming to students

Programming can be too abstract. By having to control a physical robot or Arduino and seeing what goes wrong, students learn what machines can and can’t do. They also learn the need for precise instructions. Our instructors know how to break down even the most complex system so anyone can understand them.

 

  1. Provides skills useful in future employment

With advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, driverless cars, and spacecrafts taking shape every day, the present generation of students needs to be more prepared for technological changes than any before. By programming robots, students can discover if they have aptitude and interest in a job market of the future.STEAM Laboratories and asscociated branches such as Mechatrons have been living at the cutting edge of these fields for over 20 years. We have literally invented some of these new technologies.

 

  1. Teamwork

Robotics incorporates a range of skills, and thus promotes a learning environment for people with different talents. If properly harnessed, it also promotes a culture of teamwork. We encourage teamwork in all of our classes and work with the concept of cooperition.
