How can we promote creative thinking and problem solving in our STEM classrooms?

Over 6000 classrooms around the world are using the NAO Humanoid Robot to ensure college and career readiness in coding, robotics, literacy, engineering, etc.


Learn how the NAO Humanoid Robot can engage learners of all grade levels in STEM subjects while promoting Common Core Standards based skills in a hands-on project based environment.  Encourage independent thinking while preparing your students for the best opportunities in highly technical fields.  The NAO Robots allow students to connect theory with practice and discover a wide range of robotics-related fields, such as computer science, engineering, and mathematics .Students gain hands-on experience using NAO, and, when used in the lab, they discover exciting topics such as locomotion, grasping, audio and video signal processing, voice recognition, and much more.

NAO also allows teachers to integrate team work, project management, problem solving, and communication skills in a stimulating setting. NAO offers the flexibility for developing interdisciplinary projects. NAO is equipped with a simple, visual programming tool that allows your students to create and program different robot behaviors. Students can develop behaviors combining gesture, movement, sound, music, and speech. Use NAO across the curriculum to determine the velocity of a dropped ball in mathematics and physics or deliver a joke or tell a story in computer science.
