At SoftBank Robotics, our robots are already transforming the modern workforce — helping people do better work, with less repetitive, mundane labor. But that’s just the beginning. By developing robots that can build the skills and expertise students will need to succeed in the future, we’re helping create the next generation of innovators.
Our goal is to create tools and courses that:
Engage, inspire, and teach students of all backgrounds and abilities, across their entire academic career
Create hands-on educational experiences that foster project-based, social, collaborative learning
Establish a rigorous, quantifiable framework that inspires students to cultivate their passion and understanding of STREAM skills
STREAM is a comprehensive, holistic educational approach that integrates Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics into the teaching and learning process — with a particular focus on helping students apply this knowledge to real-world situations.
Bringing Pepper — an educational robotics solution from SoftBank Robotics — to the classroom gives students from all walks of life a hands-on platform to help prepare them for careers in science, technology, and beyond.
Designed to be easy to use with a low barrier to entry, Pepper can help every student develop their STREAM skills.
Pepper directly engages with learners and helps provide a robust STREAM education, so students will remain competitive in tomorrow’s workforce.
Pepper allows educators to build hands-on, project-based applications that develop students’ problem-solving skills in a collaborative, real-world environment.
Pepper allows instructors to keep up with breakthroughs in programming and applied research through a community of educators and academic partners.
Pepper is an ideal ambassador for robotics — and for STREAM fields in general. Bringing Pepper into the classroom takes technical careers and brings them to life in a way no textbook can.
Tethys is designed to make computer science approachable, providing students with an intuitive, user-friendly visual programming tool that helps build their confidence as it builds their skills. Going well beyond the basics, Tethys helps students learn advanced concepts and even sophisticated computer programming languages like Python.
As interest in multidisciplinary STREAM jobs continues to grow, women and students of color remain underrepresented in these fields. At SoftBank Robotics, we believe everyone should be free to pursue their passions, and we’re using Pepper to aid in this endeavor, inspiring students of all genders, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds to seek careers in STREAM fields.Get Started With Tethys
