iRobot Corp., maker of home floor care appliance robots as well as military robots, hosted the STREAM 2010 workshop for robotics education from June 24-25 at its headquarters in Bedford, MA.

In partnership with the University of Massachusetts Lowell, iRobot designed the workshop to expose educators to the ways robotics can act as a tool for their instruction related to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). K-12 educators will participate in interactive sessions given by peers currently utilizing robots to successfully teach STEM-related subjects. Representatives from Massachusetts-based technology companies will also discuss the array of career opportunities that exist for students interested in ultimately working in the robotics field or other STEM industries.

"The country needs more students graduating with STEM majors to remain economically competitive, and providing our teachers with the tools that they need to teach students STEM subjects and excite them about careers in these fields is a critical step in that process," said Colin Angle, chairman and CEO of iRobot.

STREAM 2010 is a component of iRobot’s SPARK (Starter Programs for the Advancement of Robotics Knowledge) initiative, which is dedicated to fostering elementary, middle, high school, and college students’ interest in STEM subjects.
