The company provides young explorers with hands-on experiences that encourage their interest in science, robotics, and creative thinking. Geared towards nine to 16-year-olds, “Destination: Mars” introduces the cutting-edge concept of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) education through a playful and adventurous scenario. The course takes children on a 15-hour mission, during which they are introduced to robotics, as well as learn how algorithms and coding work. The course is supplemented by Mars trivia, various facts from science, physics and chemistry fields, and knowledge-testing quizzes, which all together inspire a student’s passion and curiosity for learning.
“Destination: Mars” brings the magic of programming and robotics to children as young as nine, allowing them to freely discover the world of science and learn interesting, often obscure facts about the Red Planet.” – said Karol Górnowicz – Skriware CEO.
3D printing hand in hand with STEAM education
Skriware is a Polish 3D printing startup that creates hands-on educational experiences for classrooms and beyond. Along with its “Destination: Mars” educational set, the company has created a series of products encompassing the full process of designing, building and programming robots. Individuals interested in developing their skills in those fields can gain access to Skribots Creator, an online prototyping tool, and order one of Skriware’s 3D printers, that together, provide a fully immersive play and learn experience.
Skriware’s educational platform was created in cooperation with Dartmouth College, The Astro Center at Texas A&M University and EdPlay. The solution is currently being tested by young students from all around the world, mostly through Skriware’s partners: Kids Code Fun, CoderDojo, IT for SHE and Perspektywy Foundation. The "Destination: Mars" educational set will be available in consumer sales in the coming several months To find out more, visit: www.skriware.com.
