The 5-Step Plan

Many educational robotics activities involve children with bottom-up approaches and pre-set robot tasks. However, robotics for education can be much more if used in holistic, non-task deterministic ways, like when children develop design concepts for their favorite robots. The 5-step plan offers a simple yet effective structure for this creative process. Researchers as well as educators can use it to introduce many children to robotics, not only the ones interested in becoming engineers or scientists, while at the same time explore the ideas and needs for a wide range of future robotic products and services from a children’s perspective.

„What I can say is that from what I have observed over the course of my career, there are more and more women involved in the field. If anything, the challenges with diversity are that people come from different backgrounds and if you’re female or if you come from a different socioeconomic group, you approach things from a different perspective. That can be challenging because sometimes people who have a different perspective are viewed as—or can be sometimes viewed as—well, they just don’t get it or they don’t know how to play well with others. There’s a little bit of prickliness, discomfort, sometimes when you’re dealing with people who aren’t like yourself.
That’s one of the things that we all need to be mindful of—if somebody is approaching something from a different perspective, it may not mean that they’re wrong or they’re uncooperative, it just means that they have a different perspective. And a different perspective can oftentimes lead one to ask questions or solve problems that may not otherwise have been tackled. If everybody is looking at a problem in one way, you may not see all the dimensions of the problem that are actually there. It’s a real advantage to have diversity.“ — Esther Takeuchi
