John Hajel, a computer science teacher in San Francisco explains how Pepper adds a physical element to computer science learning that engages a wider audience.
Pepper in the classroom gives students from all walks of life a hands-on way to prepare for careers in science and technology.
Pepper enables all students to appreciate technology, robotics, and computer science.
Develop students’ critical thinking and problem solving skills by building real-world applications.
Allow instructors to stay current with breakthroughs in programming and applied research.
As jobs in STEM fields continue to grow, women and students of color remain underrepresented. SoftBank believes we have a role in bridging that gap and have used Pepper to inspire students of all genders, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Pepper has a curriculum for all ages. Young students can have an interactive robotic experience while learning the basics of computer science and older students can progress to more complicated computer languages through building real-world applications.
