Did you guys know that it is currently National Robotics Week? It started on April 6th and is currently going
strong as you are reading this. That being said, knowing the importance of robotics in this day and age is not only important, but, honestly, should be a given right.
Starting off children in the early stages of robotics helps ensure that the future is not only bright but it helps
them in their current stages of education. HEXBUG is a global leader in the technology, robotics and STEM education industries. Their products spark imaginations by providing children with a positive experience with robotic toys at a young age. HEXBUG along with VEX Robotics encourages children to explore STEM through interactive play and hands-on exploration by integrating elements of STEM technology in fun and exciting products.
Why does HEXBUG help? The short answer is because it’s not just educational, but it is a lot of fun working with this simple yet well made robots. According to Loup Ventures research, the industrial robotics market is expected to grow by 175% over the next decade. Technology plays such a crucial role in our day-to-day lives so it’s natural that we have National Robotics Week to celebrate and continue to encourage the development of robotics technology. Robotics Week aims to spread awareness about how robotics technology impacts our daily lives and to encourage young people to take interest in and pursue future careers in STEM.
We had the pleasure of reviewing and testing out a few of the current HEXBUG toys plus their tie-in with Battle Bots.
