Roamer can help…
Roamer can help early learners with basics like reading, spelling and arithmetic. It can help adolescents appreciate the size of the solar system; learn a foreign language or the foundations of calculus and algebra. It is not just the the subject matter it can support, but the nature of the learning environment it creates and the attitude it fosters amongst the students.
At this age typical activities rely less on intuitive and visual solving of problems. Students can use their knowledge to find solutions. Through practical Roamer activities they can develop and master important skills.The Robot Rally Race requires students to perform experiments to determine the robots speed and to engage with various statistical calculations. Involvement and motivation in the activity outcome transfers to the mathematics making the tasks meaningful to the students.
